National Suicide Prevention Month - September 2022

Resources for Families

 

 

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. As parents and guardians, being informed about the signs of suicide, the risk factors, the protective factors, as well as resources available to help, is the best strategy to help keep our children safe. As a school district, educating and enlisting the support of parents, guardians, and families in our suicide prevention efforts is essential.

 

Please take a moment to review the information below, and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s counselor or case manager. We are here to help.
