Thomas Bloom Raskin

You are not alone! Tommy Raskin walked in your shoes too. The 25-year-old is the son of Congressman Jamie Raskin, of Takoma Park and Maryland’s 8th Congressional District. Tommy struggled with depression before taking his own life.

It’s his memory that we honor with the Thomas Bloom Raskin Act/211 Health Check.

The proactive mental health phone support provides a one-on-one connection with a warm, caring specialist trained in suicide prevention and mental health support.
