The purpose of this event is to engage girls ages 13 to 17 in mental health and wellness awareness. Based on recent data, there has been an increase in suicide attempts amongst girls ages 13 to 17. This alarming rise has placed an urgent need to engage with girls to provide education and resource information to reduce the stigma associated with suicide, mental health, and substance abuse to connect to services. The event will increase awareness, educated, and provide resources for suicide and intentional overdoses, as well as substance misuse and abuse among this demographic.
Event will include 3 youth peer speakers who have dealt with some form of mental illness, substance abuse, and/or suicidal thoughts. The event will also include the movie screening of the movie My Ascension which is about a teenage girl who survived a suicide attempt. This event is designed to be a fun day for the girls to include information and education as well as “swag bags”, food, fun, and social interaction.
