Marisa Giarnella is the co-founder of the Jordan Porco Foundation, launched in 2011 after the loss of her son, Jordan, to suicide when he was a freshman in college. In her grief, Marisa learned the unacceptable statistics surrounding mental health and suicide in the young adult population, and decided she needed to turn her grief into action so that other families would never have to experience such a profound loss. Located in Hartford CT, the Jordan Porco Foundation is committed to preventing suicide in the high school, college, and college entry student population. Through awareness, education, and innovative programming, JPF is challenging stigma around mental health and help-seeking, creating open conversations about the prevalence of suicide and mental health issues in the young adult population, and saving lives.
