Marsing Youth Mental Health Initiative

Our kids are worth running upstream for!

Marsing Jr/Sr High School, in partnership with Southwest District Health and St. Luke's Community Health & Engagement, is calling all partners, parents, families, business leaders, youth, and other community members to join us in working to build the best possible community for our kids. Data collected in the January 2024 showed that high levels of stress and social isolation were associated with increased depressive symptoms and that school connectedness was a major protective factor!

Together, we can build the best possible community for our kids!

Join us in building community and increasing physical activity and social connection for our kids!

Kindness Campaign


A Kindness Campaign was started through a Kindness Committee. The committee helped come up with a series of events that were held to build community and create a kinder Marsing.


Previous events held included Cookies & Kindness, Family Activity Night, and a Cinco de Mayo party! The #MarsingKind was also created to highlight events.

What is an Action Team?

An Action Team is a group of folks in a community (including parents, grandparents, small business owners, organizational partners, and other community members) who co-create and execute a plan to address the needs of young people. The action team combines data, real-life experiences, and research in other communities to create real change. And we can start today!

Something to Celebrate in Marsing!


Since we started surveying and working with the community in Fall 2022... just three years... we have seen the outcomes of all the school leaders; including Norm, Ken & Cindy, as well as the families, and most importantly the kids... really make a difference.

Marsing also increased kids' sense of mattering!


Thanks to our main partners in Marsing!
