(Gettysburg) -- A group dedicated to providing support to people affected by bullying, depression or suicide has opened its first community outreach center in Gettysburg.

It can be found just off the square in Gettysburg, and Founder & CEO Jesse Gantt says he'd like it to be the first of many in the midstate.

Gantt says they chose Gettysburg because of its people.

"They have a great support network. That combined with the colleges and schools and the general community that is out there that is in need of the support that mental health services can provide," he says.

The center is designed to provide support to anyone affected by bullying, depression or suicide.

"That's what the community center is all about, reaching out to those individuals and providing a safe space for them to go," Gantt explains.

In addition to a network of support on both the East and West shores, the Foundation operates a hotline 24/7.
