High School Education

Our team works with high school classrooms to facilitate discussions on mental health, suicide, and other challenging subjects to decrease stigmas and raise awareness. We show a movie, called "Not Alone," featuring intimate one-on-one interviews where the audience learns about depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide attempts, getting help, and treating mental illness. As these stories unfold, they assure the audience that mental illnesses, like physical illnesses, can and should be treated. We provide students with tools and resources to get help in the event of a crisis or before one even occurs.

In addition, we offer a youth-specific training called "It's Real: Teens & Mental Health." This program is designed to engage teens in conversations about mental health by using relatable scenarios and interactive activities. It aims to educate young people on recognizing the signs of mental health issues in themselves and their peers, reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, and encouraging them to seek help when needed. The training provides practical strategies for managing stress, coping with difficult emotions, and accessing mental health resources.
