Safe2Tell Wyoming’s tip reporting process is simple. Safe2Tell provides students, parents, and community members a safe way to report information about any issues that concern their safety or the safety of others.
Students know, long before adults do, what’s occurring in their schools and in communities – including fighting and bullying, substance abuse, dangerous and concerning behaviors, threats, depressions, suicide, and self-injury: either witnessed in-person or online. Youth violence, according to the Surgeon General’s Report on Youth Violence, is a highly visible problem that affects all segments of our society. Because of its impact on victims, their friends and family, and society at large, youth violence has been designated a public health concern, thereby emphasizing the need for coordinated prevention efforts. Communities now focus on collaborative prevention efforts with support from multiple systems: justice, education, health, mental health, and human services. Safe2Tell Wyoming provides a unique bridge between these agencies and the youth who need help to avert an act of violence or injury.
In order to break the code of silence, the Safe2Tell solution works to improve the culture and climate of schools. A vital component of the prevention model is conducting intentional conversations that empower students to speak up without fear of retaliation, embarrassment or labeling. Safe2Tell Wyoming provides the promise of hope and help.
