Coalition for a Psychologically Healthy Community
Developing Alternatives to Bullying, Violence & Suicide

Welcome to the SAVE² Coalition. We take pride in our role as change agents in order to collectively create a community with a culture of compassion.  We are a group of Upstanders who won't passively stand by to observe hate, violence and bullying to our fellow citizens. 

 Won't you join us in making a difference?

 Equipping, Empowering & Releasing Student Leaders

  Join us Friday, October 24th for a student leadership training to increase youth    
  engagement against relational aggression such as bullying, peer pressure and teen
  dating violence. For student leaders, educators, and professionals.

  Scholarships Available | 5 CEUs/CPDUs Offered 



The SAVE² Coalition was created to bring together community change agents to develop action plans to identify gaps in anti-bullying/violence initiatives, and work toward filling those gaps.

Our Pledge

As subscribers to the Alexian Brothers values of Holism, Compassion, Dignity of the Person, and Partnership, we aspire to the vision of creating a community where bullying and self-harm are not only devalued, but also not tolerated. We join with fellow community change agents to advocate for the following research-based goals:

  1. To de-stigmatize the request for help in situations where bullying, depression, suicidal thinking, or other mental health concerns occur
  2. To decrease access to potentially dangerous means to harm oneself or others (including weapons in schools, internet programs used for bullying, unsafe railroad crossings, access to potentially lethal over-the-counter medications, etc.)
  3. To support the training of “Upstanders” – that is, teaching our community to take a stand, make a difference, empathize with the struggles and despair of others, and be proactive
  4. To foster a healthy community by:
    • Providing education about the role and responsibility of the community in our lives
    • Increasing awareness of how we each participate in perpetuating bullying and the stigmatizing of mental health issues
    • Understanding how our negative actions impact others
