The Suicide Prevention Resource Page now includes a section specific to high school and college. I’m happy to be able to share some excellent material developed by the JED Foundation. As noted on their website, “Transitioning into adulthood can bring big changes and intense challenges. The Jed Foundation (JED) empowers teens and young adults with the skills and support to grow into healthy, thriving adults.”
I particularly like their “positive prevention” outlook. These resources are truly empowering–they are not designed only for kids in crisis.
While I continue to teach and support the Suicide Awareness and Prevention Workshop in conjunction with NAMI, I have been considering developing a workshop/program that looks the slightly different and perhaps bigger picture of emotional health and hygiene. Stay tuned!
