28 Sep Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness – October 2019
Dear Friends in Education,
On October 30, 2018, we received a message from a young man, a 10th grade student on social media, who told us that was supposed to be the day that he took his life. He had no hope for the future and he was tired of being hit on by his father. Earlier that day, I spoke at this young man’s school of 2300 students where I encouraged each student with the message, “You’re enough.”
This October, with the emphasis on Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness, we want to give high schools and middle schools in our state the opportunity to bring this message to their student body, regardless of your school’s ability to pay.
Having grown up in Alabama schools and now partnering with educators in our state’s schools, we understand that budgets can be challenging at times. This October, we want to remove that hurdle.
