Hanna4Hope’s purpose is to educate schools, parents, and community leaders on the warning signs and risk factors associated with adolescent depression and suicide. We believe raising awareness and focusing on prevention saves lives and builds hope. Our programs are researched based and open dialogue between schools, teens and parents. Our goal is to exemplify our motto to every teen throughout Texas and across the nation making sure they know, “You Matter….You’re Never Alone”.
Through our specialized school assemblies and workshops, we help teens, educators and parents learn the warning signs associated with depression, anxiety and suicidal behaviors. Research shows four out of five teens who attempt suicide gave clear warnings signs prior to the attempt. Our services help teens learn to be “first responders” in their schools, to lead peers to trusted adults and help educators develop proactive response plans. We have developed additional trainings and services to help schools build safety protocols and spread awareness on a topic that is difficult to talk about in public or private. Hanna4Hope works to ensure others do not have to experience the pain and heartbreak Tim and Raina have suffered through their devastating loss.
H4H has provided support to the following school districts: Rockwall, Brock, Millsap, Lipan, Pewitt, Wills Point, Chapel Hill, Mt. Vernon, Winona, Daingerfield, Frisco, Santo, Fairview, Ursuline Academy, Frenship ISD in Lubbock, International Leadership (IL) of Texas Katy, IL of Texas Houston and IL of Texas College Station, Sulphur Springs, Midway ISD and many other schools across the state of Texas.
Your donation will help Hanna4Hope to reach more students, educators and parents to raise awareness and save lives. We continue to build on our services and in addition to our interactive school assemblies and workshops, we provide trainings to educators to help them build safety protocols in their schools and manage students with mental health needs in the classroom. We are a volunteer based organization and each donation allows us to provide resources to schools and communities as well as expenses for our teams.
