Pay It Forward: No1 Has 2 Know

PAY IT FORWARD: When teens are bullied, it usually doesn't stop there.  Depression and even suicide all too often follow.

In this week's Pay It Forward, we introduce you to one woman who is making sure teens get the help they need.

When Tyheare Johnson started high school, it was a nightmare. "I got picked on, bullied, belittled," admits Tyheare Johnson.

And like so many other kids, he felt completely alone.  "I fought a lot and cursed, had a bad attitude," tells Johnson.

Tenechia Barwick-Jones sees too many kids in the same helpless situation as Tyheare.

Kids come forward saying they are ready to leave school or ready to die," says Tenechia, founder of Now1 Has 2 Know, an organization where kids can speak privately about depression, suicide, and bullying.

It's just for you. If you never want anybody to know what you're going through and work it out yourself. These are people who can help you and no one has to know," tells Tenechia.

If more communities get involved, and people aren't so afraid to say this is happening and we don't brush it off our kids, these kids will realize its okay to say 'I don't like whats happening' or 'I'm depressed.'"Pay It Forward: No1 Has 2 Know
