BYU students work with Springville High on Mental Health Awareness Week

Campaign to Change Direction is a non-profit organization whose focus is to create a common language about mental health. They do this by teaching about the five signs of emotional suffering. Just like there are warning signs for someone having a seizure, stroke, etc., there are also warning signs that help us recognize emotional suffering in ourselves and others. They are as follows:

  1. Personality Change
  2. Agitation
  3. Withdrawal
  4. Poor self-care
  5. Hopelessness

BYU students created a campaign centered around these five signs. Their target audience was high school students from three local schools including Springville High.

Over $1500 dollars was raised today at Springville High’s Make-A-Wish Assembly.  Make-A- Wish is an awesome organization that grants wishes to children who are born with critical conditions. This year, we have a wish recipient, Aleah Morris, attending our school.  Morris has a heart condition, and her wish is to sing with Bruno Mars.  As a community, it’s our goal to raise as much money as possible to help grant her wish.  In addition, Springville’s local business, Clyde Company, has pledged an additional $500 towards the goal.

All proceeds will be forwarded directly to the Utah Make-A-Wish foundation. During the assembly volunteers completed a “Dare” as each level of funds were donated.  Some of the dares included pieing students and teachers, watching students drink blended school lunches, Mr. Boss drinking a bottle of hot sauce, a student being duct taped to the wall, and Mr. Lister waxing his legs for $500.
