Founded in January 2014, It’s My Death (IMD) is a 501(c)(3) with the mission of breaking societal taboos and stigma around death and dying to support people having sincere, detailed, honest discussions regarding every aspect of their end of life wishes and care. Do it before you need to. Revisit the topic often. After all, talking about death is not the thing that’s going to kill you.
IMD educates in Maine on assisted dying laws (how they work and who they are for) and other end-of-life topics.
It’s My Death completed a name transition in Maine to [doing-business-as] Maine Death with Dignity in September 2019.
A major part of our programming is providing fact-based information regarding death with dignity laws, or medical aid in dying, and Maine’s law.
Our goal as Maine Death with Dignity is to continue the mission of engaging the public to increase awareness of any topic related to death and dying, including using the words “death” and “dying” and avoiding euphemisms like “passed” or “passing.”
