About Foundation 45: Foundation 45 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that funds counseling services for mental health, addiction and suicide survivors. Based in Deep Ellum, the organization brings awareness to unaddressed topics such as suicide, addiction, and depression that commonly occur within the creative community. Expanding beyond the creative community, they offer an array of complimentary services to anyone, which include group counseling, focus groups (such LGTBQIA+, Women of Color, and Remix Recovery). By combining these services and community fundraisers, Foundation 45 strives to redefine the mental health stigmas of musicians, artists, and everyone in between.
