START THE CONVERSATION. END STIGMA. SAVE LIVES.
The global pandemic has upended our lives and impacted our mental health and well-being. Children and adolescents are experiencing increased mental distress due to the disruptions of schools, activities and maintaining social and physical distancing.
The Let's Talk About Mental Health program is a free story-based, peer-to-peer mental health education program to engage students in middle and high schools in conversations about mental health and well-being. Together, we can promote mental health and prevent suicides.
Growing evidence shows that when schools address mental health and wellness, they can boost academic achievement, reduce absenteeism, increase graduation rates and overall student well-being.
During the 2020-2021 school year, we are taking our Let's Talk About Mental Health program virtual. Even though students are not physically together in school buildings, our message is more important than ever. Help us reach our goal to bring this virtual program to as many classes as possible during the school year.
Together, we can create communities of hope, empathy and inclusion where all students can learn and thrive. Make a gift today to support the Let's Talk About Mental Health program in schools.
