I am an ambassador for the Nine out of Ten program, which is a program that informs individuals that one in ten college students contemplates suicide. That leaves nine, given the resources, to help the one. I also volunteer at Fresh Check Day which is an effort to bring awareness to mental health resources and coping strategies on college campuses. Fresh Check Day and Nine out of Ten are the two primary programs that work closely with The Jordan Porco Foundation. The Jordan Porco Foundation’s mission is to prevent suicide, promote mental health, and create a message of hope for young adults. The foundation provides engaging and uplifting programming emphasizing peer-to-peer messaging promoting help seeking behavior, self-care, and coping skills. Programs challenge stigma by talking openly about mental health, and educating about the risk factors and warning signs of suicide and other related mental health concerns.
By helping me raise money for the Jordan Porco Foundation, you are helping save lives by funding resources and special events to promote suicide awareness!
