The Dave Nee Foundation

About Us

We seek to eliminate the stigma of mental illness by fostering candid discussions about mental health in higher education and the work place.

Mission: 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.

We believe that a principal reason for the high suicide rate in the United States is a glaring lack of sufficiently candid discussion about, and early treatment of, depression. We hope to spread the message that depression and thoughts of harming oneself are common and that treatment for depressed and suicidal thoughts must become socially acceptable.

Company Overview: The Dave Nee Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, established in 2006 in New York State. Today, we work nationally on scholarship, education, and network building with law schools, firms and bar associations to fulfill our mission.
