be nice. is a mental health education, bully and suicide prevention initiative of the Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan that creates a positive cultural change through simple daily actions. NEWC is supporting the implementation of be nice at City High School and at churches by promoting be nice.

appropriate professional help when they notice mental health changes or
concerns. This resource 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.
