This is in honor of the teens at Godwin High School and Leigh Dunavant, the Principal and Facilitator of the group #noeagleleftbehind, who have embraced conversation about mental illness and suicide prevention. They are a group dedicated to creating events, activities and programs at the school long term for this cause.

I loved that they were innovative in their thinking and open with their conversation. Tosha and I were invited as part of Beacon Tree Foundation, where I am currently President, to tell my story of Charles’ life and suicide and introduce the social media program I developed in Charles’ memory. It’s up to them what they wish to pursue which is exactly how it should be. This #griefheart in honor of their efforts to advance the cause of suicide prevention no matter what they choose. Like I’ve said before, they are the generation that will eradicate stigma in record time.

Let me know if your school is doing something innovative as it relates to mental illness and suicide prevention.
