Operation Respect is a non-profit organization working to assure each child and youth a respectful, safe and compassionate climate of learning where their academic, social and emotional development can take place free of bullying, ridicule and violence. Founded by Peter Yarrow of the folk group Peter, Paul & Mary, the organization disseminates educational resources that are designed to establish a climate that reduces the emotional and physical cruelty some children inflict upon each other by behaviors such as ridicule, bullying and-in extreme cases-violence. It is a unique organization that provides a gateway to broad scale adoption of school-based character education as well as social and emotional learning (SEL) programs.

Davidson LifeLine is a citizen-led group supported by the Town of Davidson that was created in September 2012 to educate citizens about suicide prevention. In November 2012, the group held a "Gathering on the Green" to bring awareness to the issue of suicide. The committee offers QPR training, free of charge, to all Davidson citizens, to educate them about the signs and symptoms of suicide, and give them the tools they'll need to help someone at risk. QPR stands for "Question, Persuade, Refer" and is a one-and-a-half-hour course.
