Guest: Kari Eckert Executive Director Robbie’s Hope is an organization-a movement of teens in this country focused on making meaningful change in their communities.  The teen suicide rates in Colorado have gone up over 50% in the last three years; it is the number one killer of teens 10-19.  Many teens have been struggling with the isolation during remote learning, which is leading to depression and anxiety.  Robbie’s Hope has created two handbooks called Robbie’s Hope Adult Handbook and the Robbie’s Hope Technology Handbook.  The books are writing by teens and they are for adults on how to talk to teens.  The book is free and the teens help distribute them.      robbies-hope.com
