Our Mission

The Liv Project is a non-profit organization that develops creative tools that encourage fearless conversations to turn the tide of youth suicide.

Our Vision

We envision a global shift where fear of judgement does not hold anyone back from speaking openly about their mental health. A world where we all have the skills to compassionately listen, support and safely guide those in crisis, so that youth suicide is no longer an option.
