Inspiring conversations – raising awareness -- transforming youth mental health
D.I.F.D. is a youth-driven initiative focused on raising awareness and inspiring conversations about youth mental health. Created by friends and family of Daron Richardson who lost her life to suicide at the young age of 14, D.I.F.D. is inspired by hope for a future where young people will reach out for help without fear or shame. D.I.F.D. supports programs and initiatives aimed at transforming youth mental health.
"We made the decision to speak publicly about suicide because we wanted to make a difference in other peoples lives."Luke Richardson
On November 12th, 2010, Daron Richardson took her own life. She was just 14 years old. Join us in inspiring conversations and showing support not only for Daron Richardson’s family, but for all our young people who live in silence from the pain and stigma of mental illness.
