Coming up this week on Our Town
Lori Jarvis, Executive Director of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) also Dr. Leon Kelly, M.D., the county coroner and NAMI’s board vice president – At a time when our community is wrestling with the issue of teen suicide, NAMI Colorado Springs is helping connect students with free, 24/7, confidential professional counseling — by text. “Below the Surface” campaign raises awareness of Colorado Crisis Services’ text support line. The text line allows anyone to reach a master’s-level counselor simply by texting the word “TALK” to 38255.
Together, local teens, the Design Rangers and NAMI created a series of posters, mini cards, stickers, a website (need2text.com). Though representing diverse backgrounds and various high schools, the teens have been unified in describing how fine the line is between being “OK” and “not OK.” The “Below the Surface” theme of this campaign — and some of the messages themselves — come directly from what they’ve shared.

Andrew Zeigler, Youth Team Coordinator with Hear, Here! Poetry – Hear Here helps youth and adults to sharpen their writing skills and turn past or present hardships into growth through poetry.
Hear, Here! Poetry shows how people are using their skills to help each other become more resilient. In fact, just this past year, a youth poet was able to take the pain of losing a child and turn it into a powerful piece about loss and the growth that can result despite the pain so long as that person can experience their grief in a supportive community. Part of this community takes place as youth poets spend their summers writing and performing together to get ready for an annual poetry festival. Would you like more information? Just CLICK HERE!!
