What do students and teachers think about LifeAct’s programs? We rely on our stakeholders to let us know how we’re doing, and every student and teacher that receives our program gets an opportunity to evaluate our performance.

We know our programs have an incredible impact on the lives of young people, but we’ve pulled comments that students and teachers wrote about our program this year, and they make it clear that our program is informative, relevant, and resonates with the students.

Last year I came to you with a problem….my mom took me in and I was diagnosed with depression. I’ve been talking to a therapist and I have been feeling so much better…I want to thank you for what you do because you made a huge impact on me!

Thank you so much for coming, Cindy. I was really excited to learn that you were Bi and living your best life. I’m a lesbian with very supportive parents thankfully…but my depression affects me daily and I’m glad you came to talk to us. It changed how I see the world

The LifeAct program was engaging and connected to the students. It spoke to them, not at or down to them!

Shvonne Davis, Teacher at Visintainer Middle School

This program makes information ‘real’ and ‘relative’ to the scholars in my class. They get to see how many of their peers are also experiencing or dealing with stress and/or depression…I feel this program is very thorough in covering signs/symptoms and responses to stress, depression and suicide

I liked that I got to hear about other people’s stressors and I realized that what I think is stressful can also be stressful for someone else. That makes me feel more normal

Student at Solon Middle School

I liked “learning about how serious it is and how to actually tell if someone has depression…thank you for coming in and teaching us!

It is very important for early adolescents to understand that depression is not a taboo subject. Also, many people don’t realize that they are depressed. It’s therefore crucial to understand it’s symptoms
