Auburn High's SADD Club increases awareness for Suicide Prevention Month

Auburn High School’s Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) Club is marking National Suicide Prevention Month with an effort to help students who may be struggling with mental health issues.

The club has set up a table in the main entrance that features resources, including motivational cards and pins for students and staff to wear in order to show support and spread awareness. 

“It’s just more knowledge to more people knowing that there's help somewhere, that there's help inside the school most importantly,” said SADD member Anisa Wilkins, “because a lot of it stems from, it could be from school, you never know, or outside, but knowing that they have some place of help and some resources to help guide them.” 

“It means a lot knowing that I'm able to help people,” said SADD member Briana Gabbert. “We have little cards that have a nice quote on them and on the back is the suicide hotline. So if they need to, they can call. I think it makes a big impact because knowing that they have it there. If they need it, they can take it.”
