    Freshmen 'Come Up for AIR'

    March 09, 2017
    For the second year in a row Toms River High School South’s freshmen class attended a presentation called “Coming up for AIR”, which aims to educate students about mental health disorders and suicide prevention. Mrs. Tricia Baker and her family, founders of AIR, came up with this program after the loss of their son/brother to suicide. AIR (Attitudes In Reverse) is 100% volunteer driven 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to reverse attitudes about mental health stigma. The take away message is that “Mental illness is like air. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. It is all around us.” Students were challenged to let go of their judgments and understand that no one should be criticized because they have a biological-based brain illness. All people, no matter what their differences, should be treated with respect and kindness. It is a heavy topic but much needed during the difficult time of adolescence. Students were able to visit with the Baker’s therapy dogs which left all smiling on their way out. Thank you to the Bakers and all that make AIR a successful program for young people.
