Our School Counseling department would like to inform everyone that September is Suicide Prevention Month. We can all prevent suicide by familiarizing ourselves with the signs of suicide, helping others in crisis, and connecting others with resources. The acronym ACT can help students remember the steps to follow if someone tells them they are thinking of committing suicide: Acknowledge their statement, let them know you Care, and Tell a trusted adult. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is also here to help. Caring individuals willing to connect others with counselors can be reached at 1-800-273-TALK. Individuals can also chat online with a caring professional.
