The Second Wind Fund Program

We Help Children & Youth at Risk of Suicide Get Access to Treatment...

While other suicide prevention organizations offer broad suicide prevention education and awareness, Second Wind Fund offers actual treatment services to at-risk children and youth. Second Wind Fund has built an innovative program to urgently match children and youth ages 19 and younger, who are at risk of suicide, with a licensed therapist in their local community.

Referrals are typically made by school mental health staff (School Counselors, Social Workers or Psychologists) and sometimes by other mental health professionals. Home schooled youth or those no longer attending school are also eligible.  If the referred youth is at risk for suicide and does not have adequate insurance or the means to pay for the necessary mental health treatment, the cost of therapy is paid for by Second Wind Fund.
