Student Testimonials:

  • "It may be cheesy but I realize I’m not alone. I think it’s a really good thing and honestly think that schools should require everyone to see this presentation. It honestly saves lives"
  • "This program is amazing. I enjoyed listening to all the life experiences"
  • . "It taught me we can overcome from any depression, suicide thoughts/attempts and we can ask for help. It was great and I’m glad I got the opportunity to hear their stories. I’m happy this program is available to anyone and that it’s safe and confidential."
  • "Thank you for staying so strong. I think its great this program exists. I myself was recently diagnosed with depression and anxiety and it’s great that you guys are informing others about it. It makes me feel like mental health disorders will be more accepted and not so looked down upon."
