This year I’ve had the opportunity to work along with our upper school (high school) peer mentor students in developing a suicide prevention awareness campaign. In collaboration with our peer mentor students training their fellow students in suicide prevention awareness, we collaborated with the graphic design course to develop a poster, social media post, and pocket card. Utilizing the design process, the student designers developed several solutions to propose to their peer mentor clients. From that pool of solutions we narrowed the field down to the image above and expanded it to serve all three of our needs.
I’m very excited that today we launch the social media campaign and will hang the posters around campus. Next Monday, our peer mentors will be train their fellow students and the pocket card will be handed out as support material to reference as needed.
