TWLOHA was founded by Jamie Tworkowski in March 2006. Prior to that, the seeds of the group were sown by a story written by Tworkowski, about 19-year-old Renee Yohe, who struggled with addiction, depression, self-injury, and attempted suicide. Tworkowski’s story, written in February 2006, chronicles Yohe’s life five days before she entered treatment. Unable to get Yohe checked into a treatment centre in the mean time, friends offered moral support.

  1. I’ve heard of this organization before but I didn’t know too much about it. Sounds like a really great cause!
