Welcome

Mental and emotional health are equally as important as physical well-being; yet stigma and shame surround the topics making them taboo to discuss. That is why Jana Marie Foundation has made as its mission to increase protective factors for young people and raise awareness for mental wellness and suicide prevention.

Since our inception in 2012, Jana Marie Foundation has harnessed the power of creative expression and dialogue to spark conversations, build connections and promote mental wellness in young people and their communities. 

Hope

 

 Poem and drawing by Jana  Vicere

Once I wished upon a star,

But I knew my wish wouldn’t come true,

So it didn’t.

 

Once I prayed up to my God,

But I knew my prayers wouldn’t be answered,

So they weren’t.

 

Once I planned the perfect day,

But I knew my plans wouldn’t work out, 

So they didn’t.

 

Once I hoped against all odds,

But instead of doubting, I believed,

So my hopes came true.
