The Sandy Hook Promise organization knows that, when it comes to threats of violence or suicide, most incidences are known by at least one other person before the incident takes place. Tragedies can be avoided when individuals Say Something.

Say Something Week, a program created by Sandy Hook Promise, is an opportunity for students grades 6-12 to learn how to identify warning signs, signals and threats in peers who might be planning to hurt themselves or someone else.

The San Francisco Wellness Initiative partners with SFUSD to  provide wellness centers where students learn how to cope with complex issues such as stress, bullying, depression, etc. in positive ways that contribute to their well-being and success.
