Sandy Hook Promise: National Say Something Week - October 16-20
Say Something teaches students how to look for warning signs, signals and threats - especially in social media - from individuals who may want to hurt themselves or others, and to say something to a trusted adult to get them help. The upcoming Say Something Week raises awareness and educates students and the community through training, media events, advertising, public proclamations, contests and school awards on how to say something if they believe a friend or peer is thinking about hurting themselves or someone else. When it comes to violence, suicide and threats, most are known by at least one other individual before the incident takes place. Say Something Week reinforces the power young people have to prevent tragedies and say something to a trusted adult to protect a friend from hurting them self or others. Learn more about Say Something Week and register your school or organization to receive free resources at www.sandyhookpromise.org/saysomethingweek .
