It's OK to NOT be OK!
Hi! It’s OK to NOT be OK!
Think about it. If one of us had a broken arm, we would go straight to the hospital or doctor’s office to get help and heal. We would tell our friends and family – we might even ask them to sign the cast or carry our backpack for us.
It’s the same thing with our mental health. If we’re overwhelmed, anxious and lonely, we need to ask for help. We need to be brave enough to talk with someone. Tell them we are struggling. Just because they can’t “see it”, doesn’t mean it’s not real and doesn’t mean we aren’t hurting.
We hope you will find some helpful information on this site… along with real caring people you can reach out to for help. You are not alone.
Did You Know?
Everyone has the potential to consider or attempt suicide.
2 out of 3 teens with depression don’t get treatment.
That simply asking a friend “I’ve noticed you haven’t been acting like yourself lately. Is there something going on?” can start a conversation that saves a life.
Parents who talk about suicide with their teens create opportunities to connect and calm fears.
That although teens may seem resistant, they actually feel relieved to know that someone genuinely cares.
That suicides can be prevented with regular mental wellness practices.
