Check out the brand new trailer for Power of Expression! Through the music of Big Infinite and his own personal journey, Jordan Lally shares his lived experiences of social anxiety & depression and the profound healing born from the tragic loss of his beloved father to suicide. Power of Expression offers forth tangible coping & healing strategies and perhaps more than anything, reminds us that we are not alone in our mental health struggles. Together we heal.
We are currently partnering with community organizations to host advanced screenings of "Power of Expression". Contact us if you like to bring the film and it's mindful mental health & suicide prevention message to your community.
The Truth Campaign is a new initiative from the Ed Lally Foundation encouraging people to share openly about their struggles with mental health.
The Ed Lally Foundation offers a monthly Suicide Bereavement Support Group for survivors of suicide loss. If you have lost someone close to you to suicide and would like to attend our monthly meeting, please fill out this questionnaire Suicide Bereavement Support Group Questionnaire and we will respond with additional information.
Tara, Jordan, Dj and Andre spent the weekend filming the virtual incarnation of our “The Power of Expression” mental health awareness & suicide prevention program. The next step is the editing process. Ultimately we’ll be providing schools with a 4-part interactive experience so that students might learn skills to better cope with and heal from anxiety & depression, as well as realize they are not alone in their mental health struggles. Big thanks to Jared at The Sheffield Institute, Andrew & Omar from Ten Twenty Seven Films, Big Infinite and all of our sponsors for making this possible!
On behalf of the Ed Lally Foundation, Jordan Lally and Big Infinite returned to Jordan’s alma mater The John Carroll School spreading mental health awareness through storytelling, live music & meditation. The “Power of Expression” assembly was well-received by the administration and the student body.
The experience was personally rewarding for Jordan as well, as high school was a time in his life when social anxiety began to severely limit his life experience and interactions with others. “To be able to return to John Carroll and connect openly and honestly with so many people was powerful for me”, shared Jordan.
The John Carroll assembly was the latest in a series of presentations by Jordan, the band and co-producer Tars DeCapite at schools throughout Maryland, including C. Milton Wright High School, Resurrection St. Paul’s Middle School, Bel Air High School, and many more.
