According to the National Institute of Mental Health, depression is the leading cause of suicide, two-thirds of people struggling with depression never get help, and suicide is the third leading cause of death among adolescents. TWLOHA launched The Storytellers High School Campaign in October 2011 as an initiative to change these numbers and open a conversation in high schools that discusses mental health and community.

The Storytellers is a two-month campaign where a student organizer works with a faculty advisor on behalf of their high school to create awareness about mental health issues, bring the TWLOHA message to their school, and foster community on their campus, while also raising funds for TWLOHA. The program is completely free and of no cost to the student or school involved. There are a variety of incentives for participating, including the opportunity for a TWLOHA event. Our hope and goal is that by reaching high school students in their everyday environment, and by engaging the student body as a whole, we can change the numbers.

This is my school's fundraising page for The Storytellers. Every dollar donated counts towards my school's overall total. Your help is greatly appreciated, and together we can change the stigma of mental health.
