    Dublin City Schools currently has Hope Squad Teams and Advisors in each high school and is developing Hope Squad Teams in each middle school.  In Ohio, suicide is the leading cause of death among students aged 10-17.  Hope Squad is a research-based, highly effective way to raise awareness, reduce stigma and empower our students to assist their peers in getting to the help they need when in crisis.  Hope Squad Team members do not take on the role of counselor or therapist, but rather serve as a point person for students in crisis to get to the adult help that they need.  

    Students are already talking about mental health with each other.  Hope Squad saves lives.
