Our 
Story

The Olivia Deaton Foundation was founded by Olivia Deaton in 2016 in memory of her friend, Devin Costello, with the goal of raising money for suicide prevention and bringing awareness to the mental health issues many teens face.
 

Since our founding, we have raised over $50,000 dollars which has funded art & music therapy programs, grief support groups, and has helped individuals in need receive treatment.

We believe in speaking openly about mental health issues and that by breaking the silence around traditionally stigmatized topics like suicide and depression, we can help save lives.
