DMH Teachers

Wow! I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to speak to educators from the Department of Mental Health. It was great to help emphasize & remind them of a student perspective, as well as share our mission! Such a rewarding day- I even got to see some of my old teachers:) Back to where it all began (almost a year ago!) Thank you especially to Katie and Dianne for helping to organize this workshop! We are so grateful to collaborate with you all.

Presenting with the NAN Project

Yesterday, we had the opportunity to present at the 18th Annual Restraint & Seclusion Prevention Forum. I was so lucky to speak on an issue so near to my heart, alongside other amazing peer mentors from the NAN Project. I am so grateful to the Department of Mental Health- especially Janice Label!

It was a busy day & from there, we headed to the 15th Annual Suicide Prevention Day where the NAN Project premiered their viniets- 13 Reasons Why to talk about suicide, which 13 Reasons to Fly is so grateful to be a part of! Thank you to everyone that came out yesterday, this is the start to not just prevention, but one day elimination.

New Chapter! Worcester IRTP

Huge thank you to Angelia, her team, & all the youth at the Worcester Recovery Center! We had a great day speaking with staff about what they can do to help residents while taking care of themselves. We also had a discussion with parents on what we can do to Best support their struggling children. Most importantly, we had an activity with the youth and it gave me hope to hear some of their stories and get to connect with many of them. They made up their own 13 Reasons and we discussed how we are the future and we can shift stigma and shatter labels.I’m so happy with how today went: Thank you Worcester IRTP!

Successfest

To no surprise, successfest was a success!! It was inspiring to meet many wonderful young people! I cant’t express the strength of all the people I had the pleasure of meeting. I felt surrounded by so much love today, I hope we all get to take that back into our own lives!! So grateful to have had the opportunity to spread our message alongside many wonderful initiatives.

We fly because of initiatives like successfest
