11 years after a teen’s suicide, Rainbow Fund expands mental-health help

RICHMOND, R.I. — You would be hard-pressed to find a more welcoming place than Cindy and John Duncan’s home. Bowls of fresh fruit and just-baked blueberry bread await a visitor. Coffee’s on. Laughter and good will abound.

It is here, in this comfortable environment, a farmhouse surrounded by verdant fields, that a terrible tragedy unfolded. And from it, good things have emerged.
