SUPPORT US

More than 40,000 Americans die by suicide every year, and for every completed suicide another 25 are attempted. Suicide impacts all of us, and with your support we can help to open minds to this critical issue and save lives in our communities.

Mental and emotional health are equally as important as physical well-being; yet stigma and shame surround the topics making them taboo to discuss. That is why Jana Marie Foundation works to increase protective factors for young people and raise awareness for mental wellness and suicide prevention.

  • By supporting Jana Marie Foundation, you show our youth that they are not alone – whatever they’re facing.
  • By supporting Jana Marie Foundation, you break down barriers and help young men and women change their perception of asking for or seeking support.
  • By supporting Jana Marie Foundation, you help us provide education and information to dispel the myths that surround mental and emotional health.

VOLUNTEER

Since the inception of Jana Marie Foundation, we have seen many milestones. Providing vital resources to parents and caregivers, hosting powerful events for youth to grow their self-confidence and learn life-long coping skills, and encouraging courageous community-wide conversations are but a few of the highlights of the Foundation since its humble beginnings. We have reached thousands through our community projects and educational trainings and we couldn’t have done it alone.

Volunteers have played a significant role in each of our milestones by contributing time, skills, enthusiasm, and passion in all that they do. Volunteers serve in a variety of capacities in growing our organization, including helping with the development and implementation of programs, facilitating programs that promote creative self-expression, and being public advocates within the community.

Help us open minds and save lives by volunteering with Jana Marie Foundation.
