Say Something!

Too often after an act of youth violence, facts come out that friends suspected or knew something was going to happen but didn’t know what to do with that information. In fact, in 4 out of 5 school shootings, at least one other person knew of the shooter’s intent but said nothing. Additionally, 7 out of 10 people who complete suicide told someone of their plans or gave some type of warning or indication. Imagine how much tragedy could be averted if these individuals said something?The Say Something program raises awareness and teaches students to recognize warning signs, signals and threats; and to “Say Something” to a trusted adult.
