“I was going to kill myself. Then I heard Rachel’s Story”

Rachel’s Challenge receives hundreds of unsolicited notes and emails from students, educators and caregivers annually. Many simply say, “thank you.” Most talk about the powerful impact Rachel’s story had on them personally and/or their school. In one three-year span we received over 500 notes from people who had plans to take their own lives, but didn’t – because of what they learned through Rachel’s Challenge.
