The founders of our non-profit, John and Beth Cooper, are passionate about mental health and brain science. After the loss of their son, Dr. Daniel C. Cooper, in 2017, the Cooper family has provided invaluable support and funding for incredible work being done in brain science and health. 

John and Beth, along with their daughter Leah (Cooper) Mascitelli and family, champion a fully endowed fund at Brown University for Graduate Level research (where Dan received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry), and serve as vital supporters of mental health and suicide prevention in countless initiatives and organizations.

Linda (Cooper) Finley, John's Sister, is a key leader who serves as a permanent Board Member for the foundation. Linda plays a pivotal role to the Halestreet company and to the non-profit, bringing many years of experience in executive level business consulting and coaching and leadership in the business architecture industry, worldwide. She changes lives daily with her skills in philanthropic giving, emotional health advocacy, and business strategy.
