Peer-to-Peer model for schools
We are currently meeting with staff at the South Kingstown High School, Narragansett High School, The Prout School and Amherst College regarding implementing the Peer-to-Peer programs for the 2018-19 school year. We will continue to add schools each year with hopes of bringing this important program to schools and communities throughout the state, region and beyond.
July 2018 Update: Both South Kingstown and Narragansett High School will participate in the Peer-to-Peer program for the 2018-19 school year.
September 2018 Update: Student Peer-to-Peer team members attend an all-day training conference the last week in September and begin to build their mental health awareness campaign to raise awareness and eliminate the stigma of mental illness and increase the likelihood of early detection and help-seeking.
