Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The goals of LETS are to: Pass the BP Act which would require teachers, administrators, counselors and specialists who work with students in grades seven through twelve to partake in suicide prevention training; Provide seminars to educate schools and students on mental illness and suicide; Provide resources and information to students; Receive a changed attitude and full acceptance of these issues within the community and school district; and create Club LETS at schools throughout the community . LETS was inspired by the suicide of Brittany Marie Petrocca.
Project LETS is a non-profit organization, educational program, and movement dedicated to eliminating the stigma associated with mental illness and suicide. LETS will establish LETS Clubs in middle schools and high schools where students can discuss stigma, learn about mental health, plan their own stigma-erasing projects, and lead peer-to-peer education. LETS organizes lectures, presentations, and speeches - and is currently working on a law to mandate suicide prevention training for all educators of 7th-12th grade students! Let's Erase the Stigma! All it takes is one.
