Canby High School Youth Advisory Board Builds Successful Campaign
After members of the Youth Advisory Board at Canby HS attended the SBHC annual conference last October, they returned to their school with newly gained knowledge about the high rate of teen suicide nation-wide.
Talk About It. They planned and coordinated a highly effective awareness campaign encouraging their peers to talk about it. Their message included and highlighted their SBHC as a resource that was easily accessed and available for all.
They received the support of the school's teachers, who wore "Talk About It" buttons every day for a week and were prepared to share information about services offered at the school's SBHC. The Advisory Board made short videos promoting their SBHC.
The talk about it campaign coincided with Oregon's SBHC Awareness Month in January, and was a great success. It attracted media attention resulting in a very detailed account in the Canby Herald. You can read it here.

2009 SBHC Day - Thank you Josh Eddings for the Videos!
Students, teachers, parents, providers and advocates from around the state gathered at the capitol in Salem on February 20 for SBHC Day 2009. This year’s theme, “Raising Our Hands for Health Care,” gave participants a creative way to demonstrate their appreciation and support of school-based health care. During the day, students, providers, and parents shared why access to health care for all children and youth is important to them. Check out the videos below!
