Interact Peer Leadership & Depression Prevention

A wellness resource for communities everywhere, the Peer Leadership & Depression Prevention project is delivered through Rotary and its Interact teen group. They normalize the conversation with art and video clips or by co-facilitating curricula either with content suitable for grade 7 and below or grade 8 and above. Interact teens prepare by completing the train-the-trainer provided through this link:

Communities beyond the United States have implemented the curriculum in Puerto Rico, India and Nigeria. To implement it in your community, contact a local Rotary Club or AWI.
