We are starting Hope Squad at St. Andrew this fall. Hope Squads reduce youth suicide through education, training, and peer intervention. Hope Squad members are nominated by their classmates as trustworthy peers and are trained by advisors. St. Andrew is one of the first churches in America to launch this program. This program is nationally known for its ability to connect students with each other and to mental health resources.
We are interviewing Amy Pool, from https://www.granthalliburton.org/ which has helped many schools launch the Hope Squad and has been instrumental in helping St. Andrew to start the program here.
