Our foundation was formed in 2019 with the loss of my son Shaun to suicide. I decided to form the foundation to help others that are suffering in silence with Mental Health. Our team of volunteers came together to start the conversation and to get people talking. You are not alone there is help.
We are a not-for-profit foundation that was created by Shaun’s family and friends. Our mission for the Shaun Rocco Foundation is to bring awareness to mental health in our community through financial support and education. Our vision is for a more loving community that better understands, accepts, and helps individuals suffering with a mental illness.
As a dedicated group of family and friends, we are committed to our mission with passion, energy, enthusiasm, and creativity.
We engage in activities that support community mental health services by raising and donating funds to help support agencies that align with our mission. We also sponsor educational events that promote mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to help raise awareness of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. We are commented to help people not feel alone. Think you would be a good fit? Get in touch for more information!
