Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Community Event
On February 6, a Duck Cup Memorial Fund speaker will join Waukee CSD to discuss mental health and suicide prevention. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Northwest High School Auditorium. Students, staff, parents/caregivers, and community members are welcome to attend. The presentation is suitable for students in 5th grade and above. It’s recommended the 5th through 8th graders attend with a parent/caregiver.
The speaker will share messages around:
- Low self-esteem
- Healthy & unhealthy relationships
- Coping skills
- Human Connection
- You are enough
The CDC says 1 in 5 children, either currently or at some point during their life, have had a seriously debilitating mental illness. If this event helps even one family, it’ll be a success!
