Introduction to the DMAX Foundation

In recent weeks there has been lots of talk about mental health and suicide as people realize even celebrities deal with these issues. A local charity begun by two parents following their son's suicide tries to reach out to students on campuses around the Main Line and the Philadelphia area. 

This video introduction to the DMAX Foundation with Laurie Burstein-Maxwell mentions a survey which begins on July 15 and the Dmax Clubs places where students can talk openly about their feelings and the issues they are dealing with.

 

 

We know this is a tough subject for many to talk about openly, but if we can save one life then the challenge is worth it. So please share, and take the survey, encourage people you know to take the survey and share this with their friends as well. Thanks in advance.

Anyone (like myself) who's personally known someone who committed suicide still can't always fully grasp what makes a person take his or her own life. It's not a problem with a logical answer.

Having a son who is a veteran Nina Hollander I know it is a constant thought of his that 22 veterans a day commit suicide.

Hi Nick... veterans are a "special" situation and I think we can all guess why that is happening. The real issue for them is to seriously upgrade the help they receive.

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - Thank you for the much needed video of DMAX Foundation with Laurie Burstein-Maxwell.

Although her broken heart will never be the same, she is raising awareness (you are too) and doing important work that needs to be done for students in school. Peer pressure is great. Tragedy is something no one recovers from fully. Her message needs to continue to go out so that it reaches more people. There's too much heartache in this world and both you and Laurie are taking the first step to make a difference so that children choose life, not suicide. But as you say, it's not just children. No age is exempt and everyone must be involved to find a solution and provide the loving care and help so desperately needed. 

Thank you, Nick. And may your son live a full, healthy, and hopeful life, a life he richly deserves.
