Music artist Woodney Pierre founded The Matty Jae Youth Foundation to spread awareness about mental health and suicide prevention. She started the foundation after her brother Matthew Jean Leger committed suicide after facing silent depression.
Woodney Pierre got shocked after this incident and she is now working to introduce a change through the Matty Jae Youth Foundation. With her team, Woodney Pierre wants to end the stigma of mental health and she wants everyone to appreciate their uniqueness.
The tag line for the foundation is “Shine Your Light” for each to know that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. The Matty Jae Youth Foundation speaks to mental health awareness and suicide awareness advocacy, the arts, and mentorship with youth.
Every year, the foundation team organizes a fundraiser to celebrate the life of Matthew Jean Leger and those affected by suicide, depression, or any mental health issue. They spread words through singers and spoken word artists. They have partnered with organizations locally and abroad to spread the word on this subject.
Evergreen Yonge Street Mission and Viva Haiti are some of the organizations that are drop in center for at risk youth, with which they have partnered with. Woodney Pierre and other members were able to start a recording program for the youth as part of the partnership.
Woodney Pierre experiences healing when she spreads mental health awareness locally & globally through different workshops. Woodney Pierre has herself battled PTSD and clinical depression after losing her brother. She clearly understands how poor mental health impacts a person’s overall lifestyle.
Matthew didn’t get a chance to speak about his problems with others. Now, Woodney Pierre has vowed to continue her work in his name. She provides necessary tools, knowledge tools, and resources about mental health awareness to people going through any mental health issue in life.
