Davies HS Students Dedicate Entire Week to Mental Health Awareness

Each day of the school's Thrive Week has a different activity for spreading awareness

FARGO, N.D. – Students at Davies High School are dedicating the entire week to eliminating stigmas behind mental health issues.

They include anxiety disorders, depression, and people affected by suicide.

Each day of the school’s Thrive Week has a different activity for spreading awareness.

Monday’s activity includes students wearing ribbons around the school with different colors symbolizing mental health issues.

“It’s the best feeling,” Davies High School senior Alex Baer said. “It’s been seriously the best day ever. I’m so surprised by how many people are actually taking the ribbons. I thought people would take them but not this many and it’s just so awesome seeing everybody getting involved.”

Other activities include sitting by someone new at lunch and wearing white to support those with mental health issues.
