Part 1: Safe 2 Say Something
Each year in schools and communities across the United States, there are millions of youth who hurt themselves or others through verbal, physical and digital means. These behaviors can cause youth to experience emotional trauma and physical injury, mental health or wellness issues, stress, anxiety, and/or feelings of being unsafe. Too often the outcome results in self-harm, suicide or homicide.
The Safe2Say Something system teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and say something, using our anonymous reporting system, BEFORE it is too late.
Mike Vereb, Director of Government Affairs from the PA Attorney General’s Office who spearheaded the team that established and implemented the Safe2Say program. Mike will present and share updates on the program and why and how it is an important part of keeping students, staff, schools and communities safe and secure.
