WE'RE ALL HUMAN
A student led, peer to peer program in partnership with the Ryan Bartel Foundation for middle and high schools where peer groups become agents of change for creating awareness, support and self-help seeking behaviors for those dealing with anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. From learning about what it means to deal with life's ups and downs, finding hope and inner strength and being a mentor, youth are encouraged to explore and engage in activities that help themselves and others.
Open to students of all ages, we welcome our youth to express themselves on the causes of suicide and how a supporting hand can make a difference. Email your contributions for our rotating gallery.
