Suicide is the #2 Leading Cause of Death for Youth (ages 15-24)

They need the tools to be able to manage these things and support mental wellness in their everyday lives. But how many young people are having these important conversations?

Hope 4 Tomorrow is an innovative assembly program that helps youth focus on the importance of their own health and wellness.

Students engage in interactive ways and can ask questions related to mental health in real time. The answers are used to have conversations and help the students develop strategies to help themselves and one another.

Make a Difference

The youth are our future! These conversations can make a difference in their understanding of stress, trauma and suicide prevention.

Part of the program is training in the Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR), three steps anyone can learn to prevent suicide.

Our team has certified QPR trainers that help to facilitate the Hope 4 Tomorrow program for youth.

If your school district, university or youth organization would like to have Hope 4 Tomorrow come speak to your youth, please reach out today!
