MASS: MOTHERS AGAINST STUDENT SUICIDE
IS OUR INITIATIVE: It is our main focus to provide suicide awareness and prevention training to school age students in all schools and that this training be mandatory. This training can be provided in an assembly type forum once a semester in under 30 minutes so as not to take away from teachers day and it can be free of charge through utilization of our videos of trainings, we provide for you here under the education tab. Please write your congressional staff and demand this be required in your state, school districts and communities. This training is meant to be a beginning to more indepth training. It is the awareness of warning signs and then the three steps to take once these signs are noticed. Students need this immediately and it is the first step in the eradication of the epidemic that is suicide.

Thank you, In Him I go forward....
In Hanah's memory...
Update on my efforts to reach more students.
I was trying to find a way to reach more schools across the country. I am still searching for a grant writer and grant funding, however in the interim I needed a feasible way to reach schools further away in the country. So I went to Flight Attendant school and am now employed as a flight attendant working to donate most of my earnings to Because of Hanah and in addition I will schedule at least one school every month on my days off and I can fly there for free. Students are my first priority and I vow to get to them and bring awareness and prevention training to any school that asks. If you know of a school that needs our services, have them contact me through our contact link and I will schedule them asap. In His name I go.... brining the message of Hope to our youth.
Peace and Love
We need it to be law and we are meeting with lawmakers again.....
Mothers Against Student Suicide is about to embark upon Capitol Hill once again speaking with our nations leaders, pleading for one to sponsor legislation that would require suicide awareness and prevention training for students in 6-12th grades.

So far I have met with leaders from the following offices: Oklahoma #SenatorInhofe, Oklahoma #Senatorlankford, Ohio Representative #TimRyan, Director of Education Policy General Council #TinaHone, Florida Congressman #JeffMiller, Oklahoma Representative #JimBridenstine, Pennsylvania Representative #TimMurphy.
