In 1999, the Phillips family of Atlanta formed the Nuçi Phillips Memorial Foundation in memory of their 22-year-old son and brother Nuçi, who in 1996 killed himself after a long battle with major depression. Nuçi was a talented musician and a promising student at the University of Georgia in Athens. Having lived the course of Nuçi’s illness with him, thefamily recognized the need for obstacle free, user-friendly ways of treating and supporting those who suffer from depression and other such disorders. With a focus on Nuçi’s fellow musicians, the nonprofit Foundation created Nuçi’s Space. Go to www.nuci.org to learn more.
The mission of Nuçi’s Space is to prevent suicide by providing obstacle-free treatment for musicians suffering from depression and other such disorders, as well as to assist in the emotional, physical and professional well-being of musicians. To accomplish this mission, Nuçi’s Space actively participates in treatment, educates to destigmatize mental illness and advocates for sufferers.
