The ILHS Students Against Destructive Decisions club members are offering kind words to their fellow students on the heels of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in September and during Depression Education and Awareness Month in October. 
SADD members recently spent their Laker Time placing more than 450 handwritten notes and messages of encouragement on every single student locker at ILHS.
ILHS SADD president Cheyenne Hill says the effort is to remind students that everyone matters.
"Hopefully, this gets people talking again about mental health and lets everyone know that it's ok not to be okay. We want to make people smile and help them have a good day," Hill said. 
Earlier this week club members also handed out "Don't Give Up" and "Text 4hope 741741" bracelets. 
ILHS SADD advisor Deb Metzger says they received donated materials from the local Don't Give Up organization. SADD will celebrate Red Ribbon Week at the end of October. They are also planning their annual Blood Drive for November 6th.
