Fundraising Events

HEART raises funds to support local and national organizations such as, the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.


HEART's main focus the education of middle school, high school and college students – as well as parents and teachers – on mental health and suicide. We believe that though education, we can teach our youths how to help thoes struggling with suicida thoughs and actions.

Our Organization

HEART was created as a non-profit organization by Veronica Tullo after her best friend attempted suicide. Veronica realized teen mental health and sucide is a bigger epidemic in our nation than people realize and that the best way to make a difference is to start the conversation.

Welcome to HEART...
Help Educate At Risk Teens, Inc.

Being a teenager isn’t just about going to the mall and hanging out with friends. The youth of my generation are being forced to grow up quicker than almost any other generation. About 50% of those suffering from mental health disorders are undiagnosed and untreated.

My name is Veronica Tullo and I founded HEART because this issue has affected so many of my friends and people I love. Since then I have been working closely with The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (SPTS) in Monmouth County to help raise awareness of this problem that is on the rise, especially in my home area of Morris County, NJ. Morris County has the hightest teen suicide rate in all of New Jersey. My goal is to help bring educational programs to high schools across the country. Please help me spread education and awareness. Thank you!
