The Kids & Family Expo is honored to promote our partnership with the Mental Health Foundation – be nice. program, which is a mental health and suicide prevention program with an action plan that works. The be nice. program is a four-step action plan that's proven to save lives - to notice, invite, challenge, and empower themselves and their peers. This program equips individuals in schools, businesses, faith institutions, and communities with the knowledge and confidence to take action when it comes to mental health and suicide prevention.
