The Rogers PS students rated your program #1 out of all the programs they had at the school that year…no surprise there, you guys are amazing!!!
I wanted to send an email to say how wonderful ALL the speakers were. What a tremendous amount of courage to get up and share their stories!! I was truly touched by each of their stories and I have already had many teachers come to me to share many positive comments about the speakers and their messages
I’ve had several students so moved, that they are going back to their clinical placements, and looking at ways to engage youth and mental health. I have noticed increased empathy, awareness and understanding relating to youth mental health
Students commented that YouthSpeak was one of their most beneficial parts of the days. We have seen an increase in students asking for help following the conference, which included the assembly.
I have never attended a school – wide assembly where the audience was as captivated as they were in listening to these moving stories of personal struggles and journeys.
I was blown away by the response of our students; they actively participated in the conversations and truly appreciated the courage of the speakers to share their stories
Increase empathy and resilience
Increase in number of students connected to support
