THRIVE

THRIVE are student-led clubs that raise mental health awareness and reduce stigma on high school campuses through peer-led activities, education, and events. Through a partnership with NAMI North Texas, student leaders are empowered with toolkits, materials, and resources to make running the club fun and educational.  THRIVE clubs connect students with their local community and supports them in creating a culture free of judgment and accepting of reaching out for help; a more aware and mental health-supportive school culture. THRIVE clubs are open to all students interested in mental health – It is not a support or therapy group. The club serves as a space where like minded students can spearhead activities and discussions that combat stigma and contribute to an overall positive climate for mental health

Open to high schools in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Rockwall Counties.

The purpose of THRIVE Clubs is to:

  • Educate and raise the awareness of students, teachers, faculty, and school administration about mental health and wellness

  • Be supportive of students who are living with mental health conditions

  • Encourage people to recognize early warning signs

  • Let students know there is help available if they need it

  • Encourage students who are having mental health issues to get help

  • Provide information on school and community resources

  • Work to end the stigma that surrounds mental health conditions

  • Create an inclusive, safe, and supportive school environment

NAMI knows that some of the best support a student can receive is from their peers. When students connect with one another, they can share common experiences and support each other. It's the NAMI way. THRIVE brings students together and encourages them to change the conversation around mental health.
