Speak Up, Speak Out, Speak Free

Speak Up, Speak Out, Speak Free

Speak Up, Speak Out, Speak Free is a campaign developed and implemented by Platte County High School DECA students. This strategy focused on educating their peers and community about mental health awareness and reducing stigma. The campaign encourages peers to speak up and seek help if they are struggling.

The campaign is on its second year of implementation. There are banners hung up in both the middle and high school. During the first year of the campaign, there was a billboard displayed at a highly visible location in the community, with the Encourage Hope and Help website listed. The students are currently working on sending out postcards encouraging healthy coping skills to parents of the school district for fall 2017.
