WAMO is a non-profit established by the Barber family from Jamestown, Rhode Island to raise awareness in support of the needs of others suffering from depression or similar conditions. WAMO’s vision is for a safety net of flexible, 24/7 services and resources available for individuals struggling with depression and their families or care-givers. No one should reach out and get a busy-signal or out-of-office response on what could be their last day, or with help, could be the day when it all turns for the better.

Latest Announcements

We’ve had several people inquire as to whether or not we are having a 5th annual benefit this year. We’ve been working on this for a while now, and are ready to give an answer to that question. After some challenges securing a full band for a tentative date this month (and much thought and discussion) we’ve decided to postpone the event for now. We hope to put another event together at a later date, and will announce that date if/when it’s decided. Make sure you follow us on Facebook to be up to date! Thank you all so much for your support.

On a more positive note: We are excited to share the most recent developments with our mission to spread awareness, advocacy, and education regarding depression and suicide prevention! After many meetings and careful selection, we have decided to fund a large training for mental health professionals at The Providence Center and Butler Hospital on Suicide Risk Assessment. We feel strongly that this training will have a great impact on the way professionals approach, interact with, and assess individuals who may be at risk for suicide.. and we are so happy to be supporting major facilities improve mental healthcare in the state of Rhode Island. ..All in honor and memory of Josh…and without your support, none of it would be possible.
Stay tuned for more updates.. and thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts.
