Mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members have united to promote suicide prevention awareness. As part of this initiative, we are excited to introduce our new mental health awareness campaign:
“KyleCares – WeCare”
We all need to play a role in promoting positive mental health, and creating non-judgmental, empathetic, caring, and supportive school cultures. This includes engaging individual students, athletes, families, friends, teachers, coaches, trusted adult advisors, school administrators, individual clubs, teams, leagues, and statewide governing bodies to do their part.
Students, schools, and communities strengthen each other by working together. We are stronger when we unite to address an issue, and there is no issue bigger for teens and young adults in the United States today than protecting youth mental health. We are encouraging action locally, while being part of a greater movement across the entire New England region!
We can help chip away at the stigma surrounding mental health and help transform the culture within schools by letting students know that no matter what issues they have going on, they’re not alone, they won’t be judged, and help is available to them. Ten high schools and colleges have joined the campaign already, and many more are coming! Follow our awareness campaign on social media and be sure to show YOU CARE about doing your part to change the culture.
MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS!
