OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — A group of metro teens has an important message to share to try to help those struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide. The students teamed up with Marillac Treatment Center in Overland Park to launch a teen suicide awareness project at Community American Ballpark.

They call the project “Not Even One” and use the hashtag: #notevenone.

Teens from St. Thomas Aquinas and Olathe South High Schools produced short videos that fans watched during the T-Bones game. FOX 4 Morning Show anchors Nick Vasos and Loren Halifax were there for the program’s launch, and FOX 4 is a proud sponsor of the #notevenone project.
