I'll be there for You
Implement an awareness campaign at school and in the community to address concerns of mental health among students.  Green is the color used for mental health awareness. Activities will include a "green out" day at school and during a high-profile basketball game.  Increase awareness of how to seek help by widely promoting the mental health helpline phone number and textline number. Positive messaging on bracelets, public service announcements, banners, bookmarks, doors and bulletin boards will elevate the message of “Mental Health Matters”.
