Lost Got Found was founded in March 2017. When Founder, Emily Torchiana, was silently struggling in high school, she felt "lost" and believed she had no purpose. But, once she reached out for help, she realized there is hope and support. She finally felt that she "got found." The purpose of the website is to do the same by shedding light on those who struggle with mental illness and how they positively cope today.
Lost Got Found exists to eliminate the negative stigma surrounding mental health. We encourage individuals who have been affected by mental illness and suicide to share their stories and connect with others.
