The DMAX Foundation mission is to eliminate stigma and encourage safe and caring conversations about mental health issues and emotional pain in our youth.  Its initial focus is to help create DMAX Clubs that support the mission of the foundation.  DMAX Clubs in colleges will provide a venue in which students across the mental health spectrum can gather for “friends helping friends”, to engage in “conversations that matter”and to plan and participate in fun activities.

The Website is designed to help us achieve this mission. We welcome your participation on the Website.
