Suicide Awareness - Hope Squad with Tusky Valley School District

Our Suicide Awareness series kicked off a couple weeks ago, featuring the QPR Gatekeeper training from the Survivors of Suicide Loss Support Group. On this episode, Jenn Dotto and Jodi Salvo discuss the Hope Squad at Tusky Valley School District with High School Counselor Mandy EcElwee and High School Principal Jason Phillips.

What does the Tusky Valley Hope Squad do? TVHS has 30 Hope Squad members who work with outside communities, such as Survivors of Suicide, and they also have trained high school staff to instill resilience among students. The Hope Squad improves school spirit and gives back to the school and the community.

Suicide awareness is more important now than ever due to the increased stresses and pressures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and school shutdowns. Students are suffering from lack of personal interaction with other students and teachers, and virtual learning and distancing restrictions only make learning more difficult and, for some, almost impossible.

Tune in to learn how Tusky Valley and the Hope Squad are working to educate and train students about suicide awareness. Their efforts are saving lives and improving their school and community.
