Sources of Strength is an international suicide prevention program funded by a grant from the Idaho Lives Project. This year’s group includes fourteen MTCHS and fourteen MMACHS students who have teamed up with advisors Mary Helen Green and Melissa Bishop. Their goal is to encourage students to focus on hope, help, and strength when they are dealing with difficult times, depression, and trauma.
One of their recent projects focused on the aspect of being positive friends and words that might help others who may be feeling anxious, depressed, sad, or overwhelmed. SoS peer leaders invited student input, and Evie and Emma made posters from words our students provided.
