Our Mission

If we can save just one.

Our mission is to help others and in so doing, have an impact on their lives. 

In October of 2016, Michael Maxwell Jr. took his life after being diagnosed with depression in August of that same year.  Within six months of his death his friend, and next door neighbor, did the same thing.

Our search for assistance, education and resources was an arduous task – one which no one should have to do in times of anguish and need.  Our foundation was created to provide assistance to not only those struggling with mental illness but also to assist their loved ones who are searching for available resources.

Our Focus

What We Do

The Michael D. Maxwell Jr. Foundation was formed to assist individuals who are suffering from mental illness in obtaining treatment.  We are a 501(c)(3) recognized corporation.

Mental Health Awareness

There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now, but one thing remains clear: people need access to mental health care and support.


If you or someone you know is struggling, you are not alone. There are many support services and treatment options that may help.


Mental health is an undeniably important matter, yet most people don’t have access to the resources they need when they need help.
