Earlier in the week the Department of Behavioral Health was contacted and by students from Quail Lake Charter school in Sanger. The students were tasked with bringing in speakers on topics they felt were important to them and their community.
The students chose the topic of Preventing Suicide and asked a representative from DBH to speak to the class. Brian Bishop reached out to the collaborative members and Stan Collins provided resources that would meet the needs of Junior High students. Included in those resources were references to the Directing Change Student Film Contest.
The students were amazed at the positive messages the Directing Change videos promoted and wanted to know how they could get involved. Brian shared the Directing Change contest page and offered to advise the students if they had any questions. The presentation went over without a hitch and many of the students said they’d seriously consider sending in a video.
