David Dawes Nee II Foundation

The Dave Nee Foundation's mission is to eliminate the stigma associated with depression and suicide by promoting and encouraging not only the diagnosis and treatment of depression among young adults, but also the education of young people, their families, and friends about the disease of depression. Tax ID 20-4619146


People do not talk enough about depression and suicide.  It is an issue that affects people of all backgrounds.  It does not discriminate by gender, race, sexual orientation, education or income level.  Anyone, from any background, can suffer from its debilitating effect. 

  • Nearly 1 in 10 Americans suffer from depression;
  • On average, 80 Americans die by suicide every day.

The Foundation, comprised primarily of dedicated volunteers, has worked hard to reduce the stigma of depression and prevent suicide through its support of established organizations and its own direct advocacy. 

We welcome you to explore our site to learn more about our work and how you can get involved in our efforts to help young adults, graduate level students, and legal professionals across the country in addressing depression and preventing suicide.
