The Jim Young Foundation
The Jim Young Foundation will work towards better outcomes for children, youth and adults with mental health issues. Initially the foundation will prioritize projects whose primary focus is to (1) create a world that is safe for people with mental health concerns to be understood, to ask for help, to be supported and to access treatment and (2) to provide more supports in rural and regional communities.

Jim Young was a talented and prolific British Columbian wildlife artist who completed suicide in 1992 and died at 26 years of age. His story is the subject of Fireflies: Finding Light in a Dark World, by his sister Heather Gordon-Young. All of the proceeds from prints of Jim’s work will go to the Jim Young Foundation.
