The Ryan Bartel Foundation promotes awareness about youth suicide and organizes and facilitates programs and activities to address the problem.  The Foundation does not have professional mental health staff and is not qualified to provide counselling, nor is it intended to be a suicide outreach or hotline service.  Always seek professional help for yourself or loved ones when conditions warrant, especially whenever there is the possibility of suicidal ideation. Below are some helpful resources both locally and nationally. We welcome your calls and your posts for involvement, but if you have a crisis of any sort, seek immediate help by calling 911 or one of the crisis intervention groups below.
