The Life of Joy Foundation seeks to strengthen community, build joy in mind, body and spirit, and raise awareness for holistic mental health and suicide prevention. Through events like this, LOJ provides community and resources for mental health support. The organization aims to break down the stigmas associated with mental health that can impede individuals and families from healing and building a sustainable life of joy.

Those who wish to support the mission of the Life of Joy Foundation can join the spring #LOJRiseup campaign by donating, fundraising or raising awareness, as everyone comes together to be a light for holistic mental health and suicide prevention.
