Daily, high school students across the Valley are reminded that they are “not alone.” They carry a small ID on their lanyards that tells them if they feel like giving up, there is a resource available to them where they can turn to talk about their problems.
Include Teen Lifeline’s life-saving information on all your school IDs!
Having Teen Lifeline’s number available on the back of all school IDs is an easy and vital action that will connect every teen in Arizona to help and hope. Students who feel stressed out about school, sports, family-life, or anything in-between have easy access to Teen Lifeline’s crisis hotline and the Peer Counselors who have been trained to connect their peers to resources that will save their life.
We hope you will join us and provide a vital connection of help and hope to your students. If you would like to include Teen Lifeline’s information on the back of your students’ IDs, please contact Fernanda at 602-248-8337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The message on the back can be short and simple. Include Teen Lifeline’s name, the “You’re not Alone” phrase, and the crisis hotline phone number: 602-248-8336 (TEEN).
Another example is: “If you feel like giving up, please don’t. There is help and there is hope. Call Teen Lifeline at 602-248-8336 (TEEN). You’re not alone.”
“Since our students are required to visibly wear their student ID on a break-a-way
lanyard. Adding, ‘You’re Not Alone’ and the Teen Lifeline phone number to the back of every student ID was a simple and symbolic way to put these services in our students’ hands every day.”
