The Brit Rose Foundation is a family run nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring awareness on suicide prevention, mental illness and bullying. Did you know 1 in 5 people in the US suffer from a diagnosable, treatable mental illness? Yet nearly two-thirds of those suffering will get little to no treatment. No other disease claims more lives than mental illness. Our mission is to change that. The funds raised will go directly to several organizations. i.e., The Grant Halliburton Foundation, AASP-American Association for Suicide Prevention and NAMI -National Association for Mental Illness.
