What teens are saying about us?

We asked some local teens about what the donations mean to them? 

“They’re important because there are tons of my peers that are going through a variety of different mental health problems, and I feel like Speak Up has the resources to help out these teens that are in need. It matters because suicide has continued to kill people in the community around me, and I want to make sure it is never one of my friends.”

Josh - BV teen

“I think it gives the sense of hope and the feeling that people everywhere are out there that can help in any way This matters because it gives teens like me the feeling that we are not alone”

Kade - BV student

Donate

Funds raised will support a teen mental health program including speakers and training in the Kansas and Missouri area.

About the Founders

Speak Up a 501(c)3 was created and formed by three families that suffered a devastating loss due to mental illness ending in suicide. We are united in breaking the silence and reducing stigma surrounding all mental illness and suicide. Our hope is that Speak Up will provide education and awareness in our community bridging the gaps between community, schools and parents.
