Who Partners with Us

Ed Hood, Principle at Gurrie Middle School (La Grange), talks about how the SOS program helped a mother and daughter have an open and honest conversation about her daughters suicidal thoughts.

Elyssa’s Mission partners with approximately 250 middle and high schools throughout the Chicagoland area in order to help prevent teen suicide in our communities. We fully fund—and help schools implement—the evidence-based Signs of Suicide (SOS) program. Click here to learn more about SOS.

Elyssa’s Mission has never turned a school away that is interested in suicide prevention. We currently work with schools located in nineteen counties and spanning more than 110 suburbs. We would love to work with your school too! To learn more about how to become an Elyssa’s Mission partner, click here.
