On Tuesday, October 23, Rise Together will put on middle and high school assemblies as part of Red Ribbon Week. The presenters will then be available to staff. Starting at 6:30pm in the auditorium, Rise Together will also present to parents. Please read a description of their presentation below. We hope that you can join us and be part of the solution to the increasing concerns all schools are experiencing in student mental health.
Rise Together is a Wisconsin-based organization that provides communities with educational programs, workshops, and trainings to develop strong advocates and leaders. Their cause is led by a team of dedicated professionals, all of whom have diverse backgrounds, educations, and skill sets. The purpose of the program is to educate our community around the overwhelming amount of young people that are suffering with significant trauma, large amounts of stress, substance abuse, self-harm, suicidal tendencies, and other mental and behavioral health conditions.
