Prevent suicide by creating quality connections through
everyday conversations about mental health, by way of programs and partnerships.

We can’t change the past, but together we can affect the future!


We want #LIVIN to be a universally recognized movement that promotes a world that is just as
comfortable talking about mental health as it is the weather.

Start the Conversation, Listen with Intent, Get Busy #LIVIN

Background (1)


Camp LIVIN is a weekend retreat, held annually the fourth weekend in August.


BBQ Teams, Cornhole tourney, camping, and of course LIVE Music!! It’s more than a music festival….it’s LIVIN!



Today is Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. We are a 100% volunteer, 501c3 non-profit organization. It is because of generous donors that we are able to continue impacting lives. 90% of our funds raised go directly back into the organization to support programs like; Camp LIVIN, LIVIN Music Festival, educational seminars, speaking engagements and financial grants. We are grateful for all of the support! Donate here: https://bit.ly/3u9JEtk ...

To all those who served, thank you for your sacrifice, commitment, and courage. We honor you with hearts of gratitude! Visit our website for veteran specific mental health and community support resources:

For every $1,500 raised, we can send an entire family to Camp LIVIN after a loss to suicide! Give to the Max Day is November 17th, with early giving underway. Please consider giving to the LIVIN Foundation to support programs such as our annual Camp LIVIN!

Sean joins the Advisory Board of LIVIN with over 25 years of Operational experience, including 19 years as an entrepreneur running a midsized technology installation company before moving to Master Technology Group in Eden Prairie in 2017.

Sean and his wife Katie started Stomp Out Suicide (501c3) after losing their daughter in 2011. SOS focused on bringing families together through events, public speaking, and training/implementing Hazelton’s Lifelines program in 22 school districts across MN. In 2017, Sean and Katie made the decision to hand off SOS to Canvas Health who continues to grow and operate the summer event.

Sean’s other interests include being on the boat in the summer, fishing, hunting, and spending time with his son Jake and wife Katie.
Sean is excited to join the LIVIN family and hopes his passion for mental health and his professional experience will assist in continuing to grow the movement.

Our founder and executive director had the privilege of attending @2bcontinuedmn day of education. All speakers and content focused on mental health and suicide prevention. We’re so thankful for our partnership with 2B Continued. The common bond between all four of these individuals is that each of them lost a loved one to suicide and has decided to turn their own personal tragedy into driving passion to prevent suicide. #BetterTogether #WorkTogether #StartTheConversation #ListenWithIntent #GetBusyLIVIN #LIVIN ...

September is national suicide prevention month. What better way to promote mental health awareness and suicide prevention than educating ourselves on how we can help our friends and loved ones. It starts with all of US!

About this virtual/online event:

**This unique training experience includes an opportunity to hear how the LIVIN Foundation started in addition to a Q & A with our founder, "PT" - Paul Thomas.

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR (Question Persuade Refer) learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. It is the most widely taught gatekeeper training in the United States that teaches best practices in suicide prevention.
