Jesus is our greatest physician, teacher, and counselor, whose touch heals bodies and whose teaching transforms troubled minds. Yet today, many in our community live unhealthy lifestyles, lack access to care, struggle with mental and behavioral health issues, and do not know Christ’s love. As we move to meet these needs, we seek strategic partnerships that carry out our vision to improve the spiritual, mental and physical well-being of all.
The Get Schooled Tour is a live interactive presentation for northeast Indiana middle and high schools focused on suicide and other mental health issues. It was created by RemedyLIVE, an organization which helps struggling teens have meaningful conversations via web chat or text messaging with trained individuals who can provide presence and encouragement, and is funded in part with an Impact Area Grant from The Lutheran Foundation as part of its LookUp initiative.
While the Get Schooled Tour is technically a school assembly, it doesn’t feel like one. A live band (with accompanying light show) plays music at 110 decibels in front of 34 feet of video screens featuring clips of people talking about issues like bullying, depression and suicidal thoughts. The students are asked poll questions about those topics, answering via their mobile phones, and the results appear on the screens in real time so they can see they’re not alone in their struggles.See More
