The LIPF supports both sufferers and caretakers who struggle or have struggled with major depression and suicide. The foundation was created by Timothy Price in October of 2011 after his brother David completed suicide. David was only 31 years of age when he took his life due to severe depression. While Timothy was active in David’s therapy, he realized that David’s particular conditions were difficult to treat clinically. Timothy understood that more could be done, and as a first step he asked that donations be made, to what would become LIPF. The LIPF believes that if we can even save one person’s life, then perhaps David’s sacrifice will provide some justification to his premature death. Monies raised by riders will be distributed in grants to 501(c)(3) organizations that provide services to treat depression and suicide prevention.
