“A Rainbow After Rain”

During my sophomore year, two of my classmates committed suicide. For my Gold Award, I wanted to draw attention to suicide prevention. After becoming educated in a suicide prevention program known as, “SafeTalk,” I approached my school with the idea of placing the suicide hotline number on the back of our student identification cards. I also coordinated and ran a suicide Q&A session at my high school. Other school districts and high schools have indicated they want a suicide hotline number on their student identification cards. Suicide prevention and awareness will continue to be a goal of mine.
