The Sarah Michelle Peterson Foundation was founded in 2014 with the goal of fighting depression and suicide in adolescents. Since then, we have presented over 30 unique educational programs in churches, schools, and other community outreach programs. These programs are customized to fit each individual organization’s needs. We have also attended festivals, fairs, and conventions. We have helped to plan regional events. We are active in local community groups including the HPR5 Regional Suicide Prevention Task Force, Suffolk Wellness Coalition, Virginia Beach Suicide Prevention Task Group, and Youth Partnership of South Hampton Roads. We have created friendships with other organizations fighting suicide and depression including the Chas Foundation and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
