May is national mental health awareness month. Please stop by the cafeteria during all lunches Tuesday and Thursday to purchase your suicide prevention ribbon for $1. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to Elyssa’s Mission, an organization that has helped provide support OLCHS for almost 10 years. Elyssa’s Mission provides resources to help prevent teen suicide. This community-based organization was founded in 2006 in honor of Elyssa, a bright, gifted and outgoing Chicagoland girl who bravely battled post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. Our goal is to raise $250. Anything you can donate is appreciated!
