In this fast-paced digital era, it’s easy to miss important messages or overlook certain conversations. Our attention spans may be shorter but that doesn’t mean we should ignore each other’s needs.

ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) is a statewide campaign that aims to foster a culture of understanding, empathy, and support for Alaska’s teens. Join us in challenging the status quo by reevaluating the way we approach tough emotions and daily challenges faced by today’s youth, like peer pressure to drink alcohol or knowing how to help a friend who’s going through a tough time.
Are you ready to spark positive change in the conversations you have with the people in your life? By taking a moment to reconsider the discussions we have, we can create safe spaces where everyone feels empowered to freely express their emotions and seek the support they need.

You don’t have to face it alone
