Suicide Prevention in Alternative School
Posted on 08/16/2017
Suicide PreventionShannon Drown, counselor at the Alternative School, and Katie Eye, Prestera counselor, created and shared an informative suicide prevention message with the students of the school.  The ladies shared personal stories of how suicide has touched their lives and gave helpful tips to identify suicidal individuals.  They both stressed the importance of "better safe than sorry" by encouraging students to talk with their friends who exhibit the signs of being suicidal or go straight to an adult such as a teacher or counselor for help.
