The Green Bandana Project:

Foundation 2 is partnering with local Schools interested in implementing the Green Bandana Project.

The project was first implemented on the University of Wisconsin’s Campus in Madison Wisconsin.

The purpose of the Wisconsin program is to spread awareness of resources for those with mental health related struggles.  Students tie a green bandana on their backpack to indicate that they are safe individuals to approach with mental health related needs and that they know where to find resources.  Individuals with the green bandana carry a few resource cards with them to provide to those with mental health related needs.  ​The program promotes a stigma-free and supportive environment.

The purpose of a Foundation 2 supported Green Bandana Project is similar and enhanced. To learn about bringing Foundation 2’s Green Bandana Project to your school please contact the crisis center at (319) 362-2174.
