Founded in 2002, the Second Wind Fund has served over 5,800 children and youth at risk for suicide. Suicide is the leading cause of death for individuals between ages 10 and 24. While other suicide prevention organizations offer broad suicide prevention education and awareness, the Second Wind Fund takes a different approach to this serious mental health issue. They have an innovative program that matches children and youth, ages 19 and younger, with a licensed therapist in their community. Up to 12 counseling sessions are made available to youth at risk for suicide. Referrals to the program typically are generated by school mental health staff, but home-schooled youth or those no longer in school are also eligible for counseling services. Second Wind Fund’s program helps referred youth discover hope and healing in their lives.
