When teachers, students, parents, community members and organizations join forces and work together, we can achieve more! Jana Marie Foundation is a firm believer in utilizing community experts, partnering with organizations and agencies, and educating all who come in contact with youth so we can cast the biggest safety net.


The middle and high school years are full of exploration, growth, and change and it is common for many teens to grapple with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and even thoughts of suicide.

Through innovative programming, Jana Marie Foundation helps educators in the community build personal strength, important coping skills, and resilience among the youth they serve.


The Jana Marie Foundation delivers educational trainings to help youth, parents, teachers, and concerned community members recognize and understand potential warning signs and how to support the young people in their lives.

“I can definitely see myself using this in everyday life. Even if the person isn’t suicidal I think the ways the training taught us to approach them could be widely used.”
