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

Mary Serie is one of our Advisory Board members! She grew up just outside of Detroit and moved to Minnesota in 2006 and attended the University of Minnesota (undergrad) and the University of St. Mary’s Winona (graduate). She spent the first 8 years of her career working in the nonprofit sector – specifically with grants, events and large corporate partnerships. She transitioned into the technology sector leading a global channel partner program and most recently working at Concur.
Mary is most excited to continue to use her nonprofit expertise for a cause that silently affects so many people. Mary’s version of #LIVIN is being outdoors and spending time with her family! Thank you for helping us grow the organization, Mary!
Stacy has been part of the LIVIN Foundation from day 1, when it was founded in 2015! Chances are that if you are receiving a check or an invoice is being paid by LIVIN, that Stacy is the one taking care of it! Stacy, her husband Derek and the entire Ramacher family have been and continue to be extremely dedicated to the #LIVIN movement and are there whenever we need them. When asked why she is so passionate about LIVIN, she had this to say; “The foundation is very near and dear to my heart. I’m honored to be part of the movement. It is important to me to be able to spread the message, with hopes of giving others the encouragement to talk openly about their mental health. Be kind as you never know what battles one might be facing.”
