Promoting Youth Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

About the MJR Foundation

Our lives were uprooted on May 29, 2017 when our son Miles died by suicide at the age of 15. Immediately after we lost Miles, we recognized the stigma behind mental health and death by suicide and were compelled that this would not be our story. Initially, we set-up a fund in Miles’ name with the University of Michigan Depression Center. This fund has helped to support the Peer to Peer Mentoring programs in middle school and high schools, focusing on supporting anxiety and depression awareness and outreach. In August of 2019, we started the Miles Jeffrey Roberts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation with the mission to promote youth mental health and suicide prevention through effective programs, education and advocacy.
