Suicide Prevention

According to the Centers for Disease Control, suicide is a serious public health problem that affects many young people. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for youth between the ages of 10 and 24, and results in approximately 4,600 lives lost each year.

If you are concerned about yourself or someone else, tell a school administrator, counselor or trusted adult. Do not keep this a secret, ask for help!
