Safe2Help Illinois
Posted on 04/27/2021

District 39 is participating in a new statewide school safety program called Safe2Help Illinois. This program will offer students a safe and confidential way to share information that may help prevent suicides, school violence, and other threats to student safety.

In the absence of a trusted adult, students can use Safe2Help Illinois to share concerns about themselves or others in a confidential environment.

Safe2Help Illinois can be reached multiple ways:

Once vetted, the information will be shared with District 39, mental health professionals, and/or local law enforcement, depending on the nature of the tip. This program is intended to encourage students to “seek help before harm,” with the goal of intervening and helping students before they harm themselves or others.

This program is available to all D39 students, families and staff. Here is a one minute child friendly video explaining Safe2Help.
