Suicide Prevention Rocks Created on Facebook

JYLF Co-Founder, Dawn York, began using art therapy in the form of painting kindness rocks with her younger children to help them cope with the loss of their brother.  The “kindness rocks” first painted were painted to help prevent others from acting on suicidal ideations.  In doing so, the group name was born.  Her husband and Co-Founder, William York, created the group and invited others to join – which they did and continue to do.  Members hail from all U.S. States and Countries on every continent.
