Phase 2: Wake Up Chapters
MSSPC AND THE WAKE UP CHAPTER MODEL
Shortly after the idea for the documentary came to light, the founders of Wake Up also founded a student organization at the University of Missouri: MSSPC.
With the ultimate goal of connecting students to mental health resources on college campuses, these Wake Up chapters will aim to raise awareness; helping students and faculty better understand the impacts of suicide, mental health, and suicide prevention while also providing a voice to individuals, families, and friends who have been impacted by suicide and mental health through our benefit events, MSSPC weeks, and butterfly releases.
Every member is certified with “Respond Training” which equips participants with the tools they need to facilitate a crisis situation should it arise in a peer.
