The Lizzy Foundation is located in Smithfield, Virginia and is dedicated to combatting  adolescent suicide.  It is our desire to provide training and educational materials to our community while promoting awareness and hope for those who are impacted by suicide.

The Foundation is named for Lizzy Altizer, a bright, talented teenager who left this life decades too soon. After her death, her father Mike Altizer, founded this organization with hope of helping other teens.

If you’re struggling, take the time you need today for self-care and reach out to someone you trust. Help is available, and you are not alone.  Please call 800-273-TALK or text “Talk” to 741741. They’re here for you.
