Mission Statement

It is our mission to break the silence of teen suicide by fostering positive relationships and encouraging open discussions between teens and the community. We believe the community and schools play a critical role in the prevention of teen suicide so we will achieve this through a variety of educational events and programs. The David J Cobb Foundation will bring awareness to this epidemic by providing the support and resources needed to end the stigma and being the voice for those who suffer in silence.

Description

he David J Cobb Foundation was established in June 2016 to honor my 17-year-old son who battled mental illness. Sadly, he lost his battle on October 23, 2015, when he took his life at home. David was my beloved son, my best friend, my heart and soul, my whole life. I have started this Foundation as a way to cope with my loss and in doing so will be the voice of those who suffer in silence and I will continue to honor my son and his legacy by helping as many people as I can.
