Who we are:
We are a confidential ear and voice to those in crisis, and a conduit to professional resources. We conduct actions via social media and one on one encounters. JTF participates in, and host events intended to raise awareness of the behavioral health challenges, and offer an outlet to those who choose to open up for help. Many of us have been in that dark place and found a means to turn away from it. We have ALL been impacted by the tragic reality of suicide. We feel compelled to act. Our most important message is that it takes more courage to seek help than to continually internalize and suppress those feelings of depression, guilt, and self loathing. REMEMBER, you never walk alone. We provide a confidential outlet for those who do not trust the system, and recognize the desire to maintain confidentiality .We empower others to seek assistance and/or take action.
