Sources of Strength

We are proud to introduce “Sources of Strength,” an international suicide prevention program funded by a grant from the Idaho Lives Project.   Eleven MTCHS and nine MMACHS students have teamed up with advisors Mary Helen Green and Melissa Bishop on a mission to spread hope, help, and strength into every corner of our community.   Their goal is to encourage students to focus on hope, help, and strength when they are dealing with difficult times, depression, and trauma.

SOS Peer Leaders put together a short video to introduce the program and its goals to both schools.

This week’s project was the Thankfulness Challenge.  Every student and staff member was given a leaf and told to write something they were thankful for.  These leaves were put up in a colorful cornucopia display on the wall in Haley Hall for all to see.
