Suicide Prevention Training Offered for Parents and Caregivers
As our families navigate the pressures of today's world, the biggest protective factor is the strength of our combined community. We can all be active in supporting our young people and helping them be the healthiest they can be.
Join us for our annual Suicide Prevention Training for Parents and Caregivers on Thursday, December 2, from 6:30- 8:00 p.m. via Zoom. This training is designed for parents and caregivers of students in grades 9-12, but all adults in the district are welcome to attend.
