Take 2 for Suicide Prevention

September is Suicide Prevention Month and the Antelope Valley High School District is on a mission to prevent suicide by reducing the stigma attached to talking about suicide. Over the next month, through Google Classrooms, we will be sharing information, videos, and resources related to suicide awareness and prevention. We encourage you to view these resources with your child, continue the conversation at home, and help break the stigma of silence. Please visit https://teenlineonline.org/parents/suicide for more resources on how to have these challenging conversations and how to better identify warning signs. Suicide is preventable, and we are all key to prevention.
