Hope Squad is a peer-to-peer suicide prevention program. Hope Squad members are nominated by their classmates as trustworthy peers and trained by advisors. The program reduces the risk of youth suicide through education, training, and peer intervention.
What is the mission of MHS Hope Squad?
Our Hope Squad at Morgan High School seeks to create a safe school environment, promote connection, support anti-bullying, encourage mental wellness, reduce mental health stigma, and prevent substance misuse.
How does Hope Squad help?
Prevention- School suicide prevention involves educating the school community and increasing mental health, connectedness, and resilience.
Intervention-Intervention involves recognizing when someone is at risk for suicide and referring the person to mental health resources.
Postvention- Postvention involves helping those affected by a suicide cope with the loss and reducing the risk of further suicides.

This year, MHS Hope Squad is encouraging all students and staff to utilize “The SELFIE Method”.
The SELFIE Method is an acronym for self-care and a powerful arsenal against depression. Feeling down and want to feel good? Or do you feel pretty good and want to feel even better? Take a SELFIE. No matter where you are on the well-being “scale,” this six-item toolkit will help you kick your energy, health, and happiness up a notch (or several).
