About Us

We strive to accomplish our goal of mental health awareness and suicide prevention by placing disc golf discs with crisis intervention information at courses throughout the United States. We are also working with parks to place signs with mental health crisis line information at courses to further help ensure easy access to emergency mental health services when they need them. We hope to continue to expand and develop multiple interconnected chapters of Disc For Life in communities throughout the nation in order to further destigmatize mental health issues and provide services and support groups to those in need.”

Message from our Founder, Chad Duncan

“On August 7th, 2020, my father ended his suffering and began mine. My main mission is to try and reach anyone who is dealing with a crisis. To let them know that they are not alone in their struggles, no matter how difficult or hopeless it may seem. By speaking up and speaking out, we can get through this together.”

Chad Duncan

I am the Founder of Disc For Life and have sat on the board as the President since its creation. The mission of this organization is very close to my heart as the loss of my father was the catalyst for its creation. Outside of Disc For Life, I am a truck driver for a small local company. My hobbies and interests include off-roading, camping, dogs, PC/Console gaming, and of course disc golf.

Hi I'm Stacy. When I'm not following my husband around a disc golf course I enjoy reading books and being with my family. Mental health is big for me. Supporting others and being someone to lean on is important to me.
