Information for Parents and Suicide Prevention Resources
As a parent or family member of a teen, many people struggle with how to talk to their loved ones about suicide and where to go for information if they need help.   This video can be a good starting point if you have questions, and this organization is a great resource if you have concerns.  Click on the picture or use the hyperlink to view the video.​
Of course, the school staff is always available to assist and provide guidance if you believe your child is in trouble.
