We are a Hudson Valley, NY nonprofit that awards grants for mental health awareness and suicide prevention programs in local schools and communities. Our goal is to get teens & adolescents trained & talking -- before it's too late.

Hudson Valley Friends for Suicide Prevention began in October 2019, and joined forces with the Here Comes the Sun Foundation in February 2021. We are led by a committed, resourceful team of professionals, friends and family members who have all experienced loss of a loved on by suicide. We know first-hand how this type of tragedy feels - as a parents, siblings, guardians, and colleagues. We are here to help and to make a difference.

 

Although suicide is no laughing matter, we are searching for ways to make our programming relatable and light, to appeal to a younger audience and to reduce the stigma.

We are a charitable component fund of the Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley. The Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley is a 50l(c)(3) public charity with EIN# is 23-7026859.
