About Jordan Porco Foundation

Mission Statement

The Jordan Porco Foundation is a Hartford-based organization dedicated to preventing suicide, promoting mental health, and creating a message of hope for young adults. They accomplish this with engaging and uplifting peer-run programs that strive to start a conversation about mental health that reduces stigma while encouraging help-seeking and supportive behaviors.

Description

A fresh approach to mental health programming

Colleges and universities are hosting Fresh Check Days across the U.S, engaging about 40,000 young adults, each year, in important mental health conversations. Post-event surveys show that the vast majority of students who participate say that after Fresh Check Day they felt more aware of available resources, more prepared to help a friend who might be struggling, and more likely to ask for help if they themselves are in emotional distress.

Nine out of Ten Ambassadors are signing-on across the country, shining the spotlight on mental health and suicide prevention with their peers.

4 What’s Next is their newest program. It is a primary prevention program that builds psychological resiliency in high school students by giving them the tools to handle stress and distress now and in their future. Students gain important skills related to coping and help-seeking, and learn how to apply these skills to better manage conflict, time, and money, as examples.
