With deaths by suicide increasing and mental health challenges facing our community, education and awareness of these topics is critical to save lives.

"The data is clear and the impact of mental health and suicide on their community is real" said suicide prevention expert Dr. Dan Reidenberg of SAVE. "This is why we need to bring more awareness to students, parents, teachers and everyone in our community on how to help prevent suicide," Reidenberg said.
