HonFest 2019 - Suicide Prevention Rocks | Joshua York Legacy Foundation

On July 28th, 2018, we lost my dearly beloved boyfriend and partner in life, Joshua York to suicide. He was the kindest soul I’d ever had the opportunity to meet and have in my life. He was the guy that would never turn down someone in need of a friend or a shoulder to cry on. He was the guy that was always there for anyone, no matter the situation – he just believed in helping and improving the lives of all those around him.

Founded shortly after he passed, our organization has been dedicated since inception to increasing mental healthcare accessibility, decreasing the stigma surrounding mental health, and simply spreading love to all those in need, and anyone willing to listen. We stand firm to our values, and have a goal to make suicide a thing of the past. Mental Health matters, and should not be taken lightly, or turned away from talking about. It’s our goal to bring it to the forefront and truly make an impact in his name.

According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Suicide is the 10th leading cause of the death in the US, with a reported 47,173 deaths by Suicide in 2017 alone (129 per day) and over 1,400,000 attempts in that same year. These are numbers that are staggeringly shocking and must be taken under control.

Members of our Facebook Group, Suicide Prevention Rocks, which spans nearly every country in the world and touches every inhabited continent with over 12,833 members has now grown to reach the top 2% of all Rock Painting Groups worldwide and is the #1 Largest Suicide Prevention related rock group in the world. We will grow larger, touch more hearts, and impact more lives.

William York and Dawn York are the founders of Suicide Prevention Rocks and say the rocks are meant to bring happiness and joy people by spreading kindness painted on them.
