Our organization is named after our son, Max Cochran, a young man who took his own life at the age of 19. Max was a beautiful, vibrant, loving person who “lit up” the entire room every time he walked into one. Unknown to many people, Max fought for many years to conquer his struggles with mental illness, and he was a very strong-willed person who tried many different ways to overcome his personal battles. In the end, life became more than he could endure. We, his family, battle daily the grief of his loss and try to understand why Max was hurting so much. Unfortunately, we will never fully understand.
Goals for this organization: * Bring awareness and remove the stigma of Mental Illness in our community, especially in our youth. *Offer free Mental Health counseling to our community students. *Make a positive difference in the lives of the youth in our community.
Help us to MAXimize the Mental Health of the Youth in our Community!!!
