About the Campaign
One in five kids experience a mental health condition and only 20% of them get help. Fund a groundbreaking interactive classes for middle and high school students to help end the silence. This unique one day presentation provides personal stories that share the reality of living with a mental health condition, key warning signs, and addresses how to get help. The message of empathy and hope encourages students to actively care for themselves and their friends, and teaches them it’s okay to talk about what they’re feeling.
