Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD)

What is SADD?

  • SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), is a nationally recognized organization that aims to raise awareness about mental health, and help prevent students from making potentially destructive decisions. Our mission is to empower young people to successfully confront the risks and pressures that challenge them throughout their daily lives.

    Through school based activities and county wide competitions, we work together to show everyone how their decisions affect their lives and that life is worth living to the fullest. The WHHS chapter of SADD is a multi-award winning group, recognized in the community as tackling tough issues in ways that are impactful and memorable.
