GWT Sponsors and Attends Arlington Race to Save Young Lives with Elyssa’s Mission
GWT and some of our team were humbly able to participate as a Partner Sponsor and Attendees at Elyssa’s Mission 10th Annual “Race to Save Young Lives” Benefit at Arlington Park Racetrack.
Elyssa’s Mission® provides resources to help prevent teen suicide. The community-based organization was founded in 2006 in honor of Elyssa, a bright, gifted and outgoing Chicagoland girl who bravely battled post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Elyssa’s Mission® provides hands-on support to area public and private schools in order to educate students, staff and parents on how to recognize and assist those teens most at-risk. We have helped educate over 300,000 students since inception.
Elyssa’s Mission® funds and implements the evidence-based SOS Signs of Suicide® Prevention Program in over 130 middle and high schools in Illinois through our partnership with Screening for Mental Health®, a Massachusetts-based organization that pioneered the concept of large-scale mental health screening and education programs. We assist with all components of the SOS program including planning, teaching and training for staff and parents.
We encourage you to visit Elyssa’s Mission’s website to see how you can become involved in this important, life saving cause. http://elyssasmission.org/
