September = National

Suicide Prevention Month


September was National Suicide Prevention Month. It provides the opportunity to become more aware of how we can help prevent suicide among the children and youth we serve. The attached tip sheet provides information about risk and protective factors, warning signs, how to help children and teens in crisis, and provides resources. 


​Thank you for taking time to review it to increase your knowledge in this area.
