The Problem

Suicide is the THIRD leading cause of death for young people. Suicide is almost always preventable. It's time we start using our voices and talents (STUDENT VOICES) to break the silence. If we don't start talking now, who will?! Aevidum means "I've got your back." It's something that you can say to a friend to let them know that you're there for them. Mental health and mental illness is so hush-hush, but it doesn't have to be. So many people are faced with mental illness at some point in their life. Lets break down the stigma and speak up!

Plan of Action

Aevidum is an educational empowerment mental health initiative where motivated educators challenge students to find their strengths and then to discover opportunities where they can amplify their voices. These experiences will empower students to live lives of purpose and substance! We want to spread Aevidum to as many schools and communities as possible. Every school in the nation should have an Aevidum chapter so that young people know that somebody has their back! Also, we are currently working on an Aevidum training model for future teachers to complete before they start teaching. That way, they can be a first responder and reach out to their students.
