Strength in Our Voices was founded in 2016 to eliminate stigmas surrounding mental health. We work towards our vision of communities that embody mental wellness through our mission: to create an open dialogue, education, empowerment, and positive change.
Every generous donation we receive enables SIOV to host a variety of unique wellness empowerment-focused events, participate in panels and seminars to raise awareness, and bring Sources of Strength, an incredibly powerful strength-based suicide prevention program, to schools in the DC region.
Since our founding, we have raised funds to train our teammates and members of local school communities and beyond as certified Sources of Strength trainers. By the end of 2019, we had collectively trained nearly 800 Peer Leaders and over 250 Adult Advisors, in 17 unique schools, for a total estimated reach of 25,650 students.
Our recent partnership with DC Public Schools will enable us to continue bringing Sources of Strength to several new schools in DC proper. Help us reach our goals by donating today. Your contribution makes a huge difference!
