More mental healthcare access and information

This petition had 94 supporters

Things like suicide are nearly always preventable, if we are able to intervene in time. Intervention can look like Positive Behavior Support, hotlines, and of course, more education about mental illness and access to professionals.
If we encourage students to come forward to their counselors and advocate for themselves, to recognize and not be ashamed of needing help, we can better teach them how to deal with crises.
With education, we can help erase the stigma against mental illness that prevents so many from seeking help in the first place.
