Let’s Teach Emotional Literacy in Our Schools!
Now is the time for emotional literacy to become an integral part of our educational system. Depression, anxiety, bullying, substance abuse, and suicide are on the rise, and our children need our help.
With your support, we can turn our vision of every single student in the United States having the necessary tools to lead happy lives, and where the future of our country is rooted in mental stability. Be a pioneer in a movement that will touch the lives of millions of students across the nation.
Mental Wellness Curriculum is Becoming the Law!
In 2018 the states of New York and Virginia became the first states to require a mental wellness curriculum in schools. Both laws came into effect amid an increased focus on mental health and suicide brought about by the suicide of two prominent figures — Kate Spade, a fashion designer, and Anthony Bourdain, a chef and CNN host — who died by suicide within the same week of each other in June of 2018.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people ages 15 to 24 and the 10th leading cause of death overall in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We pray that this huge step forward is one Florida and all other states will implement in the near future.
The potential for a happy life is the right of every child
