Project All In Foundation and “the coin” was created to help the first responder community start conversations about their mental wellness, help debrief calls, and ultimately to aid in suicide prevention. Taking the first step to ask for help can be hard. Members who have the All In coin can simply slide it forward towards another member and a conversation is initiated. The recipient of the coin can be an active listener or start the conversation if need be. The coin may also be presented to a friend or family member. Project All In recognizes the need for all first responders to have easier access to resources in support of their mental health and well being.

The ultimate goal is to help people get their lives back and reconnect with their family and friends through teamwork, self-discipline, meditation, exercise, nutrition and sharing positive experiences, in a natural environment. We have designed a program of activities and adventure for our campers to push personal limits, break down barriers, and reestablish a relationship not only with nature, but also with themselves. These experiences will provide our campers with the tools to cope with everyday struggles, and teach them about problem solving strategies, setting new goals and the importance of daily routines.
