The Will To Live Foundation is dedicated to preventing teen suicide by improving the lives and the ‘Will To Live’ of teenagers everywhere through education about mental health and encouraging them to recognize the love and hope that exists in each other.
The Will To Live Foundation, in keeping with its mission of working with and through the kids of our community to help them improve their Will To Live – has introduced the “Life Teammates” program.
They are your Life Friends – always there for you – and you always there for them! On & Off The Field!

WHO ARE YOUR LIFE TEAMMATES? DO THEY KNOW!
Since the foundation was formed, over $1.0M has been raised, by the kids! An incredible achievement! Spreading a positive message of love and hope that not only raises awareness of depression and teen suicide in their communities, but helps them understand the power that they have to deliver hope to each other!
MY LIVING WILL is a candid and inspirational story by the Will To Live Foundation’s co-founder, John Trautwein. A journey that begins when the Trautwein family awoke to the heartbreaking discovery that their teenage son had completed suicide.
