Educators and Administrators
Educators play a crucial role in promoting mental wellness amongst teens. Zero Reasons Why® began when six neighboring school district superintendents came together during a regional teen suicide crisis and realized the missing link in their suicide prevention efforts was a lack of teen input.
When educators have been open to learning directly from teens, we’ve seen incredible change and positive momentum in the community’s teen suicide rate. When teens feel heard by those in leadership positions, strong partnerships are formed where teens and educators work together to accelerate positive mental health in their school.
