About Aevidum

Aevidum's goal is to create positive mental health environments where all students feel accepted, appreciated, acknowledged, and cared for in schools and communities across the nation. The word Aevidum, which means "I've got your back," was created by students in 2004 after their classmate died by suicide. The Aevidum message is delivered creatively through a series of student-generated materials, interactive displays, high-energy assemblies, community events, music, artwork, stories, PSAs, etc. At the core of Aevidum is an educational philosophy that empowers students to take responsibility to make a difference. Aevidum students are encouraged to use their gifts and talents and to recognize the gifts and talents of their peers to create cultures of care in advocacy in their schools and communities. In 2009, Aevidum received SADD’s National Activity of the Year award, selected from more than 10,000 schools from across the nation. Aevidum has also been recognized by the Pennsylvania Senate, Pennsylvania House, the nation’s top mental health experts, the mental health directors of New York and Ohio, and professors at Penn State University, Florida State University, and the University of Maryland. In addition to appearing on TV, radio and in newspapers across Pennsylvania, Aevidum has appeared on Good Morning America.
