"NEVER STOP FIGHTING"
David possessed a charismatic attitude with a loving support network and could always bring a smile and a laugh to those around him. Sadly, during the final years of David’s life, he lost his way and suffered immensely with depression and CTE symptoms as he struggled to find purpose and his place in the world. The loss of David is a lesson to never stop fighting, even when the world seems dark and hopeless. Find strength to surround yourself with a network of those who can be supportive and assist in the battle and tribulations that mental health present, and above all, never let the fight within to stop fighting. This is what The David Whitehead Foundation will look to provide for those in need.

It is important to note, that as family, support networks, colleagues, and friends of those who fight unseen battles, we must continue to give strength and support, as well as never giving up on those in need. Let us continually look for alternative solutions, even if someone refuses to let you in.
Never stop loving, no matter how difficult it may seem, and when called upon, be there, as an ear, a shoulder to cry on, or just in physical presence. Provide love, empathy, and compassion through the most difficult of challenges.
Wishing all, love, peace, and strength. God Bless.
