Suicide Prevention

Munster has been hit hard this past 6 months by teenage suicide. This sounds like it might be worth going to.

PRESENTATION TO BE HELD ON TEENAGE DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE AT MUNSTER HIGH SCHOOL-WED. MARCH 12, 2008 AT 7PM

The CHOICE Community Council will be sponsoring a presentation on teenage depression and suicide on Wednesday, March 12, 2008 at 7:00PM in the Munster High School Auditorium. This free presentation for parents will be provided by representatives from Tri-City Mental Health Center and will cover information on warning signs, statistics, proper courses of action, and available resources to aid parents. Parents are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to receive this important information that could save someone’s life.

This post caught my eye. We had a 7th grader in our community commit suicide this past week, and early next week I am hosting a parents meeting for parents of youth in our church. Do you have any notes from your meeting?
