About Us

The Johnny Foundation was formed by The Leathers Family to share what they know now but wished they had known before their 21 year old son, Johnny, ended his life August 29, 2000.  They want others to know there is help and hope. They are committed to raising awareness through providing counseling services through local counseling offices, networking with fellow survivors and sharing resources.
