The Joshua York Legacy Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to suicide awareness and prevention through outreach, education, and improving mental healthcare accessibility.
The Foundation was created to help prevent others from sharing our experience. The Foundation desires to normalize the topic of suicide to make it easier to talk about its causes, its impact on loved ones, mental healthcare treatment and other ways to prevent it.
