Who We Are?

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A CRISIS  CALL 9-1-1 OR National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 9-8-8

Jeeps Against Suicide had a simple start in 2018 as a Facebook community page by Shawn and Nicole Cicero, a Jeep loving couple as a place to share their grief for a friend who died by suicide and as a place to share photos of the first event, they held to raise funds and awareness or mental health diseases. Shawn started to work on logo designs, eventually having several they used on the Facebook page and even one they used to create and sell shirts to raise donations for mental health programs.

If you are in need of additional mental health resources please check out the below websites, WE ARE NOT MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS but we may be adding some to the team soon.
