Ending the Silence for Students is a 60-90 minute presentation designed for middle and high school students that includes warning signs, facts and statistics, and how to get help for themselves or a friend.
As a result of participating in Ending the Silence, Santa Cruz County teens said they will:
“Ask for help if I need”
“Speak up more”
“…talk to my family or friends when I have a problem or concern”
“do more things that make me happy”
“Tell an adult if I am getting symptoms.”
“Pay attention to others and try to notice if they are struggling with their mental health.”
