Why SRMD chose NAMI – Aidan’s Story

At Skin Resource, our team is small and close-knit. So, any event impacting one of us is deeply felt by all. Just like with the passing of Paul, we’re feeling the pain of another loss, Aidan.

Aidan Dougherty was the son of our finance Director, Jody. He was an exceptional young man--an Eagle Scout, High School Senior, and was recently accepted to NAU. Those close to him describe him as loyal and compassionate, conscientious and kind-hearted. Aidan was bright, articulate, and much loved by family and friends.

Aidan also struggled with depression and anxiety like many of his peers in the current mental health crisis. On January 6, 2024, he died by suicide, a tragedy that leaves behind a void that resonates with everyone who was touched by this extraordinary young man. Too many others face similar struggles.

In recognition of the urgent need for support, we advocate for an organization like NAMI, which hasthe capability to provide crucial assistance and potentially save lives.
