SPEAK—Suicide. Prevention. Empowerment. Awareness. Knowledge.—addresses the increasing incidence of suicide and raises awareness about mental illness. Established by the Foundation in 2016 in partnership with area mental health organizations and school systems, SPEAK provides resources and education through annual trainings, the SPEAK North Alabama app and more.
“This program has truly made me want to go into clinical social work even more. I am so grateful for SPEAK and the opportunity to better my school community.”
