On average one person in Maine dies from suicide every 39 hours.

Suicide is never the answer. It is a permanent solution to a temporary problem!

The JD Foundation (JDF) was founded by a mother who lost her son to suicide. JDF believes that depression and mental illness is treatable and no family should have to lose a loved one over lack of education. 

The JD Foundation focuses on Education and Training, Raising Awareness, Grief Support, and Giving Appropriate Resources to those in Crisis and their family members.

Latest Updates

Spring walks are suppose to be done on beautiful spring days. Today and tomorrow both sound kinda of gloomy, so I'm going to reschedule the walk to next Sat. the 24th @ 1 pm. This coming week the biggest percent of the song birds will be returning and hopefully more of the wildflowers will be in bloom. Vic.
