The Joshua Nolan Foundation (JNF) was set up in 2014 by founder and CEO Laura Nolan in memory of her son Joshua, who took his own life in 2013, and to address gaps in mental health support she and her son experienced. Laura had struggled to find Josh the support he needed and this drove her to establish the JNF with the goal of reducing suicide rates in Edinburgh and aiding those in need of mental health support through awareness, education and funding for specialist counselling.
The small but mighty team here at JNF raise awareness of mental health, wellbeing and suicide risk, and highlight what support is available in Edinburgh. We also partner with highly trained individuals to host workshops and research about mental health, removing stigma and supporting health and wellbeing outcomes in children and adults. And last but not least, JNF offers financial help towards the cost of counselling sessions for all people regardless of age or gender who may be struggling or don't feel comfortable in their own skin, those who feel overwhelmed, vulnerable or unhappy and need a little extra support. With access to the right counsellors and by opening up the national debate we can touch the lives of so many around us.
So join in, get in touch with the JNF team and start fundraising today, as this is about offering a helping hand to those invisible faces around us who need it most.
