The Deseray Smith Foundation Mission

Where No Friend is Left Behind

Our Mission

The Deseray Smith Foundations was created to change the stereotypes and stigma of mental illness. With 1 in 5 Americans diagnosed with some type of mental illness in their lifetime less than 40 percent don't get the help they desperately need. That means tens of millions get inadequate or no care for this devastating social and emotional emergency.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death in people ages 10 to 34 and it does not discriminate. It affects men and women of all ages, colors, and social beliefs, regardless of educational and religious backgrounds.

The Foundation is here to help you find the needed emotional support resources so you can take the next step and start moving forward, so you can resume a normal way of life again, regardless of your ability to pay. The next step is the most important. All you need to do is make that call, and help is available through the Deseray Smith Foundation.

Remember and never forget no matter what happens or what you are going through people love you and need you in their lives. There is a bright tomorrow in your future.
