Essentia Partners with Fargo Police Department to Tackle Suicide Prevention

Following two high school students in the Fargo area dying by suicide, the Badges of Unity program in Fargo launched a project to address the stigmatized and difficult topic of mental health and suicide prevention. With a $5,000 grant from Essentia, Badges of Unity is creating a video with personal testimony from local voices to share in schools this spring, with the goal of supporting youth and saving lives.
