Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10-14, with overall suicide rates increasing across age groups. Grant Us Hope provides lifesaving programs in over 200 schools across Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, transforming conversations around mental health to help prevent suicide.  

Grant Us Hope serves the community by collaborating with school administrators, teachers, parents, and students to provide mental health response training, parent education and support, along with postvention to assist schools and survivors.

Our work creates Hope Squads, which are school-based, peer-to-peer programs with multi-year curriculum that teaches students suicide prevention fundamentals, self-care, and anti-bullying. Hope Squads develop a culture of belonging and reduce the stigma associated with mental health. These important skills transcend education and benefit entire communities.

Here are three ways we work with parents, educators and staff throughout our community:

  1. Addressing suicide and school violence. Students are taught about mental health issues and learn the signs that can result in school violence or suicidal tendencies. Their knowledge empowers them to seek adult intervention.
  2. Reducing Isolation. The peer-to-peer Hope Squads provide connection for students and allows them to identify vulnerable and high-risk peers to ensure they receive help.
  3. Supporting parents. Grant Us Hope provides tools and training to assist parents and educators in navigating mental health issues for children in crisis at home and school.

Your financial support is critical to continue our vision to Save Young Lives, Together! 

Please share our stories of hope and help us put an end to the youth mental health crisis.
