“Mending Broken Hearts”
Champions, Laurie Burstein-Maxwell and Lee Maxwell share their heartbreaking and inspiring journey.
Dan Maxwell was a high school senior who had it all. He had lots of friends, stellar grades, and played 3 different sports … but was overwhelmed by depression and his family still grieves his loss from suicide.
Dan’s parents Laurie and Lee have found some comfort by establishing the DMAX Foundation. The mission is to remove the stigma of mental illness by establishing DMAX Clubs on college campuses which provide safe spaces for young people to talk about their struggles without judgment and support each other – helping to strengthen mental health and emotional well-being.
