We have begun suicide prevention training for the teens with the Teens4Teens program. This program teaches teens the real statistics, what to look for, and what to do. They leave with a plan for what actions to take should a friend, or even if they themselves, are experiencing suicidal thoughts. More info to come about further sessions.
I will be travelling to Virginia this week for a family visit and plan to meet with the parents of a beautiful teen daughter recently lost to suicide, bullying, and concussion. Just like Madeline. They have started an anti-bullying movement called Freeze Bullying for Payton. See their facebook page for more information. We hope to join forces in some way to bring awareness to the devastation a bullying event can cause.
