Resolve to Rise - Change Lives
2018-2019 TASC State Project


Mental Health is a highly relevant topic, and increasing numbers of mental disorders are being documented in schools. While most youth are physically and emotionally healthy, increasing numbers of young people experience emotional, mental, or behavioral disorders, and suicide rates are on the rise.

TASC challenges you to Resolve to Rise - Change Lives as we work to meet the challenge of mental wellness in our schools. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a well-accepted theory about the needs that motivate human behavior. Let’s climb this mountain together and empower students in our schools to reach their full potential.

Below are ways your council can help our great state rise to the peak and plant our flag together. This silent epidemic will not be silent anymore. Let’s turn a mental health week into a year of mental wellness. #TASCreachthepeak

Yours in Leadership,
Ema Waring, Lainey Freeman, Cheney Stephenson, Jarret Carnes, Madeleine Jones
