The LIVE Campaign
The LIVE Campaign is a positive mental health campaign to encourage self-care and compassion in our communities.

To love yourself means to accept who you are because there is only one you. You have a unique set of abilities that only you possess. To love yourself also means to take care of your physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

To include others means to understand that we are all different and that is a good thing. Everyone has their own individual talents and by working together we can make our communities a place everyone feels accepted.

To value life means to believe you have a purpose that only you can fill. Part of this purpose is to help both yourself and others. To value life also means to help others find their significance.

To engage the community means to come together to make a positive difference in the lives of others. We make a difference by having open conversations to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. To engage also means to connect with others.

During the week of September 9th, Hartman, Ishpeming, Negaunee, NICE and Republic schools are all going to take part in LIVE Week. Each day of the week, students will be asked questions that pertain to the LIVE campaign and what it means. At the end of the week, winners will be drawn from each school. All of the winners will receive LIVE swag, and one lucky winner from each participating middle and high school will also win a $25 gift card. Teachers will also be eligible to win prizes during LIVE week. Watch the West End Suicide Prevention Facebook page for more details about how teachers can win!
