S.P.E.A.K. (Students Promoting Emotional Awareness and KidPowerment)

SPEAK, or Students Promoting Emotional Awareness and KidPowerment, is a pilot program at Des Moines Central Academy focused on defeating the stigma that surrounds mental health issues and instructing other people in how to help someone who may come to them in need of mental health help. Its goal is to support students emotionally, not just academically. For more information, please visit SPEAK’s website at speakca.org.
