Suicide, like Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence, ranks among subjects not spoken or acknowledged, especially in communities of color. Additionally, all three issues know no boundaries of race, class, age, gender or sexual orientation. As a result, Mental Health care is not easily sought because of the so called stigmas attached. Thus people suffer in silent isolation.The Don Cornelius Foundation’s advocacy is dedicated to prevention of suicide and support for survivors who have lost loved ones to suicide. We seek to increase awareness and prevention by supporting programs creating culturally competent tools for national use. It is our desire to assist in the creation of a diverse national network of early awareness, prevention and treatment services. In honoring the legacy and tradition of the Renaissance man, Don Cornelius’ entrepreneurial spirit, as it relates to television, music and the arts, you can be part of this effort.
