SUICIDE PREVENTION: According to the CDC and SAMHSA, for every person who dies by suicide each year, another 280 people think seriously about suicide, but do not do it. This is important to know because that means if you or someone you know has thought about it, you are not alone. It’s okay to talk about it and get help. 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).
