[ARCHIVED] SPEAK Week to kick off April 26


The Brighton Youth Commission will be hosting a series of events for SPEAK (Suicide, Prevention, Education, Awareness and Knowledge) Week April 26 - May 1. The goal of SPEAK Week is to raise awareness about the prevalence of teen suicide and to educate the community on mental health issues and the stigmas surrounding them. 

SPEAK Week will consist of virtual and socially distanced activities (April 26 - 30) and end with a SPEAK Walk on May 1. Virtual activities include a QPR (question, persuade and refer) class, outdoor art and other activities. The annual SPEAK Walk will take place at Carmichael Park in half hour waves from 1 - 4 p.m. Facial coverings will be required and any other COVID-19 health and safety guidelines at the time will apply. Registration is required for the walk. Go to to sign-up. Ticket prices are $20 for adults and $15 for students. Proceeds from this event will go towards future SPEAK projects.
