Hanna4Hope’s purpose is to educate schools, parents, and community leaders on the warning signs and risk factors associated with adolescent depression and suicide. We believe raising awareness and focusing on prevention saves lives and builds hope. Our programs are researched based and open dialogue between schools, teens and parents. Our goal is to exemplify our motto to every teen throughout Texas and across the nation making sure they know, “You Matter….You’re Never Alone”.

Through our specialized school assemblies and workshops, we help teens, educators and parents learn the warning signs associated with depression, anxiety and suicidal behaviors. Research shows four out of five teens who attempt suicide gave clear warnings signs prior to the attempt.  Our services help teens learn to be “first responders” in their schools, to lead peers to trusted adults and help educators develop proactive response plans. We have developed additional trainings and services to help schools build safety protocols and spread awareness on a topic that is difficult to talk about in public or private. Hanna4Hope works to ensure others do not have to experience the pain and heartbreak Tim and Raina have suffered through their devastating loss.

H4H has provided support to the following school districts: Rockwall, Brock, Millsap, Lipan, Pewitt, Wills Point, Chapel Hill, Mt. Vernon, Winona, Daingerfield, Frisco, Santo, Fairview, Ursuline Academy, Frenship ISD in Lubbock, International Leadership (IL) of Texas Katy, IL of Texas Houston and IL of Texas College Station, Sulphur Springs, Midway ISD and many other schools across the state of Texas. 

Your donation will help Hanna4Hope to reach more students, educators and parents to raise awareness and save lives. We continue to build on our services and in addition to our interactive school assemblies and workshops, we provide trainings to educators to help them build safety protocols in their schools and manage students with mental health needs in the classroom. We are a volunteer based organization and each donation allows us to provide resources to schools and communities as well as expenses for our teams.


Hanna4Hope (H4H) is a non-profit organization established to bring awareness and education to teenage suicide, one of the leading causes of death for adolescents nationwide. Hanna4Hope’s mission is to educate families, school personnel and community leaders on the warning signs and risk factors associated with suicide and provide resources to promote prevention and mental health treatment connections.

On April 25, 2013, Hanna Clark, age 15, took her own life leaving a devastating void in her family and community. Her parents, Tim and Raina Clark, founded Hanna4Hope in July 2013 to raise awareness of teenage suicide and help other struggling teens who are suffering from depression and suicidal behaviors. Hanna4Hope strives to reach teens, their parents, and school personnel through are unique services and open dialogue about mental health and suicide.

Hanna4Hope began their mission leading teen workshops that help teens recognize the signs of depression and suicide and teaching them how to be leaders in their schools through the development of Hanna4Hope clubs. We expanded our services to interactive school assemblies in both middle school and high schools across the Dallas Metroplex and now across the state of Texas. We provide needed education, resources and support for teens, parents, educators and school administrators in direct response to the increase in adolescent suicides focusing on prevention and safety protocols for at risk teens. Hanna4Hope began by servicing the Dallas Metroplex and expanded their services state wide. This past year we have taken up the cause nationally and are developing products and services to address the suicide crisis from state to state.

Hanna4Hope strives to make an impact on the surrounding communities and over the past nine years has supported suicide prevention programs in the area as well as provided scholarships to graduating seniors planning for careers in mental health care. The Covid pandemic has taken a toll on Hanna4Hope financially as we have not been able to do standard fundraisers for the foundation. We have restructured to provide services virtually and are developing a series of virtual trainings for school educators, parents, and community leaders. Our goal is to exemplify our motto to every teen across the nation making sure they know, “You Matter….You’re Never Alone”.

Trained H4H representatives speak at large group assemblies, usually at schools. These assemblies serve as the point of entry for many program participants, allowing H4H to reach large numbers of teens, faculty and parents with critical information and training that may save their own lives or those of their peers and loved ones. The assembly presentation is an interactive program that delivers straight and honest dialogue regarding depression and suicide and the effects on families, students, schools and communities.
