Kenny Slaught Discusses Benefits Of Hospice Youth Support Initiatives

Kenny Slaught endorses Hospice of Santa Barbara for building an active presence at local school campuses of all levels, from elementary school to college. Volunteers visit campuses and organize weekly support groups for students experiencing traumatic or complex scenarios and requiring a safe space in which to discuss their thoughts and feelings. On-campus groups aim to create open atmospheres that encourage self-reflection and boost critical coping skills. Effective coping skills help adolescents avoid drugs, alcohol, and other forms of self-medication. In addition to direct work with students, the hospice volunteers offer training to faculty and staff members about how to communicate with students who are dealing with trauma and how to handle their questions about death, most notably violent deaths and suicide. Each of the 65 schools in the Hospice of Santa Barbara network can call on the organization around the clock to respond to a traumatic situation quickly and successfully.
