Student/Teen Outreach for Mental illness Prevention – S.T.O.M.P
Our STOMP program is the flagship program offered by Please Live. From Please Live’s inception, we knew we wanted to provide education to youth and young adults in a way that was easy to understand and down-to-earth.
Over the course of Please Live’s history, this education has been fine tuned to cover the basics of mental illnesses and suicide prevention, focusing on real and practical ways that students can assess their peers for signs and symptoms of a problem, how to intervene, and how to get help for themselves or a friend. Our program has also expanded to include teacher and staff training to equip adults working with youth with the skills to identify and refer at-risk students, and in addition we have included a community health fair portion which brings in local help agencies and parents into the mix.
