September is National Suicide Prevention Month. The Ambassadors and Counselors are sponsoring a week of awareness beginning 9/22-9/29.
Each day we will give a step for how you can Be The One to help someone else in crisis. On Thursday, September 29th, we encourage everyone to wear Purple or Teal in support of Suicide Prevention.
Step 1 is be the one to ASK, Step 2 is be the one to KEEP THEM SAFE, Step 3 is be the one to be there, Step 4 is be the one to help them connect. Step 5 is be the one to follow up.
If you are struggling, see a school counselor or call the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
Remember that anyone can be the ONE to save a life.
Don’t forget to wear purple or teal on Thursday, September 29th to support suicide prevention!
