Riverside County Schools Receive Suicide Prevention
Mini Grants

Five schools and youth-based clubs from Riverside County have been selected to receive a grant through the Directing Change Mini Grant Program this year. Each team will work with youth in their communities to teach lessons on mental health and suicide prevention and support youth as they create short films on these topics. These grantees will also be hosting events at the end of the school year to share the films and raise awareness in their communities around youth mental health and suicide prevention. Congratulations to this year’s grantees!
