Peer to Peer Mentoring

12 Apr 2016

RAPID CITY, S.D. –┬áPrior to March 1, 2008, in Rapid City, there was a 30-month period where 14 teens took their lives. ┬áMuch of the teen community in Rapid City was in crisis.

In the fall of 2008, Rapid City Central High School received a grant to implement Peer Led Prevention.

More than seven years later, the program is proving to be successful. The last suicide to impact the school happened in 2011.
