Suicide Prevention & Awareness

  • According to the CDC, suicide is among the leading causes of death for people ages 10-66 and is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 10-14. During times of uncertainty, it is important for students to remain connected to healthy friendships, school activities, trusted adults and needed resources.

    It is our aim as a district to teach students to ACT- Acknowledge, Care, and Tell. Knowing the signs of suicide, understanding the importance of practicing self-care or showing a friend you care, and understanding when to tell are all the first steps to saving a life.
