Schools We've Helped

This past year was monumental for Matt’s Foundation and for suicide prevention in the Los Angeles area high schools.  Over the span of just about 6 weeks, we worked with Active Minds to bring nationally renowned young adult mental health speakers to Los Angeles. The speakers held partial and full-school assemblies and the reactions from both students and administrators were amazing. In addition to those speakers, we also brought the incredible Send Silence Packing suicide prevention exhibit to our local schools. If you can imagine, we spread 1100 backpacks with personal stories out on the lawns, football fields, and common areas of High Schools, giving the students the chance to learn more about depression, anxiety, other mental health topics, and ways they can help prevent suicide.

 

Matt’s Foundation then partnered with Human Power Project to fill in the rest of the school year beyond those six weeks. With our partnership, we can help more schools than before, year round. Ross Szabo’s inspiring educational school assemblies and curriculum inspired so many schools that between Active Minds and adding Human Power Project, we have more schools requesting our services than we ever could have anticipated!
