Hello! My name is Nicole and I am a crisis technician at the Crisis Center with Safe Harbor.

I am looking for monetary donations or just your support on July 26th to help me "Go over the Edge" in support of Mental Health. All money raised will be benefitting Safe harbor and the Achievement Center, two mental health organizations here in Erie. 

It is my mission in life to be an advocate for Mental Health and continue to help others in any ways I am capable of doing.

I have decided to take part in this event in memory of my Brother, Shane Patterson,  who completed suicide in 2010 at 18 years old. This traumatic event changed my entire life and changed the person I was .  I had to dig down deeper than I ever believed I could to find the strength to continue my own life and that is why I am here today speaking out about Mental Health and planning to Rappel off of the Bicentennial Tower to raise money for this cause. Beyond my own personal experiences I am also taking part in this  event In support of EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has struggled or who has known someone who has struggled with their mental health.  We need to come together as a community and truly unite.  


EVENT DATE: July 26, 2019
LOCATION: Bicentennial Tower at Dobbins Landing

Safe Harbor Behavioral Health is joining the Achievement Center in going Over the Edge on Friday, July 26. Partnering with Over the Edge Global and the Port Authority of Erie, the two nonprofits will send participants “Over the Edge” of Erie’s iconic Bicentennial Tower.
