October is ACES and Resilience Awareness month.  It is a time when we acknowledge the pain that many of our youth (and all generations) deal with.  Life can often seem bleak and hopeless.

  • 31% of our sophomores claimed they felt so sad or hopeless almost every day for two weeks or more in a row that they stopped doing usual activities.
  • When asked if they have an adult to turn to when they feel sad or hopeless, over 51% of high school sophomores answered “no” or “not sure.”
