To provide peer support services, education, and resources to those in mental health crisis to live happier and healthier lives.
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
On November 19th, 2020, Marius Hathaway, my beloved son, tragically took his own life. He struggled, for years with his Mental Health. He was an amazing brother, son, and person; he lit up a room, he could make anyone laugh, and made everyone around him feel safe and comfortable. Unfortunately, Marius struggled with depression and felt that the world would be better without him in it. That is why we started this foundation, for people like Marius who felt that he was alone and unworthy and could not talk about this dark passenger that invaded his thoughts and his life. We are creating an environment that destroys the stigma that Mental Health is something you keep quiet about, that you don’t share because it is “embarrassing” or “not normal”!
We want to break the silence so people like Marius, don’t end up feeding into that darkness, so they can speak about their emotions out loud and not be ashamed. To be able to access the care they need no matter their financial status, age, believes, race, or social status.
Marius was an amazing young man with the heart of a saint who should still be here with us today, laughing, graduating from High School, and starting his life as an adult. We were not able to save Marius but this foundation is striving to save you or a loved one in need of help, no matter what. EVERY LIFE MATTERS! ONE LIFE AT A TIME…
