1. On April 24, 2019, The DMAX Foundation held its fifth educational event ”Finding Strength in Broken Places” at the Shipley School in Bryn Mawr. The event featured an executive networking forum, followed by a VIP reception and a program with an award ceremony. The DMAX Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2013 by Lee Maxwell and Laurie Burstein-Maqxwell after they lost their 18- year-old son Dan Maxwell to suicide. The mission is to eliminate stigma and encourage safe and caring conversations about mental issues and emotional concerns in youth. In response to the mental health crisis on college campuses where ever-increasing numbers of
students are facing mental health issues the Foundation is establishing DMAX Clubs: trusting environments for honest everyday conversations about mental health so young people can understand and help each other.” Kari Kohn, Susan Farnam and Laurie Burstein- Maxwell paused for a photo during the VIP reception.
