Suicide Prevention Awareness: YOU could be the difference
Senior, Kaitlin Chheng, is currently working to raise Teen Suicide Awareness in our community as a part of her Girl Scout Gold Award. Mental health problems and suicidal thoughts may hide in plain sight, and it is up to us as a community to recognize this, raise awareness, and prevent it.
Learn about what to do and what to be on the look out for. YOU could be the difference.
Need someone to talk to? Need Emotional Support? We are here to help!
Small doses of support can have a much bigger impact than you expect.
