Joyce Hicks knows the hurt of losing a loved one to suicide. So that others never feel that same pain, she works vigorously to spread suicide prevention education and build awareness of mental health issues as the board chair of the Nebraska chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Her work as an advocate for suicide prevention has not only helped save lives, it has earned her the Gregg Young “We Go the Extra Mile for You” award. The auto dealer recently presented Hicks with a plaque and $500 in recognition of a life mission that has positively affected numerous individuals throughout Nebraska.
The Kim Foundation congratulates Joyce on her amazing achievement and would also like to thank her for her continuous efforts to increase awareness and decrease the stigma associated with mental health issues.
