Belinda Bea Foundation (™ Pending)

Dr. Key’s dream is to have a 5013C that will focus on mental health education, empowerment and giving a voice to the voiceless. Dr. Key has plans to launch the Belinda Bea Foundation in 2020. The organization is named after Dr. Key’s late aunt Belinda Martin and grandmother Beatrice Martin. Belinda suffered from a debilitating mental health condition that led to her untimely death. During Belinda’s last few years of life, Dr. Key was her guardian and learned first hand the work of a caregiver. She believes her organization can focus on fundraising to provide programing and support for families that are experiencing a mental health crisis.
