Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our aim is to help individuals recognize and achieving positive mental wellness in their lives by existing to offer hope, support, and encouragement, within a personal relationship.

In addition to striving to maintain our current programs, we are continually looking for ways to improve their efficiency and reach through the communities across the globe.

We also continue to explore opportunities to create new programs and options with the over all goal to improve our outreach both nationally and internationally.

UMTR2ME founder, Jimm Greer, is dedicated full-time to managing and overseeing every aspect of the day to day operations of UMTR2ME as president and CEO.

In addition to currently having a board and team of passionate volunteers who have a heart for helping those in need, we continue to be on the look out for individuals who can bring with them a committed level of unparalleled talent and passion for people that UMTR2ME reach through communities across the globe.

UMTR2ME has launched, with success, several programs that enable our team to establish personal relations to those we interact with.

Our next big project is to launch a suicide attempters support group in 2019.
