January 2022 News!
Happy New Year.
Thank you for following us into 2022. Your support helps us stay grounded in our efforts and our focus strong. We know mental health awareness and suicide prevention are topics that are heavy, emotional, and at times uncomfortable. Your willingness to share what we’re doing ensures we’re able to reach even more people with the hopes of keeping Jackson’s legacy shining bright.
Before we launch into a new year of advocacy and awareness, we want to take the briefest pause to highlight all we were able to accomplish in 2021—together. Thank you for the important role you play in our efforts and outreach.
We look forward to what we’ll accomplish in the future!
All the best,
Reyne & Scott Roeder
