When a suicide occurs in the life of a young person, families, teachers, administrators, and community members often band together to show support and offer their condolences. The enormous amount of support is touching to see and even more touching to experience. However, families, communities, and schools often struggle with ways to prevent such tragedies in the future. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses risk and protective factors for suicidal thoughts, empirically supported treatment, and ways in which educators and school personnel can help families and students. In addition, she will share available resources for schools and parents.

Good information. Sadly we are all in need of training and discussion as to how help and indentify kids who need help.
Relationships are so important! It all stems from kids just wanting to be heard, known, and loved simply for being who they are. Deeper relationships provide a feeling of safety and motivation to succeed in all areas.
