The mission of the Hope Squad is to reduce youth suicide through education, training, and peer intervention. Hope Squad members are trained to be aware of their peers and watch for warning signs. They learn to show empathy to their peers, listen without judgment, and reduce stigma regarding help-seeking and mental illness.
Here at Sky View, our team is nominated by peers.
Sky View's 2020-21 Hope Squad Team members:
Janine Justis and Blake Tubbs are advisors for the Hope Squad.
