Odom Academy Student Council hosted “Say Something” week to raise awareness for mental health and gun violence. To honor the Sandy Hook Promise, which is a national non-profit organization, students encouraged fellow Wildcats to participate.
“Say Something” teaches students how to look for warning signs, signals and threats, especially in social media, of an individual who may be a threat to themselves or others and to report it to a trusted adult to get help.
“I believed in this project from the moment it was mentioned. Mental illness is a problem for many people and we need to help,” said Student Council president Angelina Martinez.
Students hung notes and poster boards around campus with positive affirmations, posted on social media using #SaySomething, wore green to support the movement and pledged to uphold the Sandy Hook Promise.
