A place to begin:
Suicide is one of the leading causes of preventable death in our nation today. We lose approximately 100 young people each week to this tragedy that can be prevented.

Never be reluctant to get involved and always take any child/adolescent’s expression of intent to harm themselves seriously. If you suspect a young person of suicidal ideation, get them to professional help immediately.

Suicide is Preventable.
