SUICIDE AWARENESS: Did you know it is ok to ask someone directly if they are thinking about suicide? Asking someone if they are thinking about killing themselves won’t put the idea in their head. In fact they will most likely feel relieved that they can talk to you about it. Stop by the office to pick up a resource card for more information. If you would like to be involved in this campaign and other Friday Night Live activities come to our meetings – Thursdays at lunch in Room 1. (Lando’s room)
