Story of Student Suicide Prevention

One Saturday a sixth grade student used the Bridgit app to report a friend was threatening to commit suicide. The school leadership team received the Bridgit report and immediately executed a coordinated response, contacted the parents who confirmed the student was in immediate danger. School officials and parents intervened to prevent what could have been a tragic result and arranged for the student to receive professional help.  Bridgit provided a confidential, safe, documented channel of communication to the Upstander friend through which to help his friend.

Story of Student standing up to a teacher bullying her and others in her class because of their religion

In another of our schools, an eighth grade honor role students was being bullied because of her religion, she was Muslim and wore a Hijab. The bully in this case was not another student, but rather a teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience. The student was visibly upset by the encounter, but told no one at school. When she went home she immediately told her mother what had transpired in school that day. The mother at first told her daughter that she should not challenge a teacher, however her brother spoke up and confirmed that this particular teacher was openly biased against Muslims. The mother and the daughter then logged into the daughter's Bridgit account and together filed a Bridgit report based on religious bias.
