The buses are rolling and the school bell has rung. Kids are back in school and returning to their "normal" routines. But for many teens, the dawn of another school year means a return to both friends AND fears... successes AND defeats... all while being surrounded by a sea of people, yet
feeling isolated and alone.
But teens aren't the only ones impacted. Each fall, parents are once again scrambling to "fit it all in," all over again!
No matter your age, it's all too easy to get overwhelmed. But when that feeling persists, either physically and/or emotionally, it can be a very scary place. Unfortunately, not everyone reaches out, or has been reached out to, in time to make healthy, lasting changes in their lives.
At YSB, Suicide Prevention is more than a month of awareness in September. It is our 40+ year long commitment to ensuring youth and their families have the resources, care and compassion needed to RESTORE HOPE, even during the most difficult of times.
Fortunately, we are not the only voice. EVERYONE has a role to play in Suicide Prevention.
We encourage you to utilize the free online resources below; to strengthen yourself and support those you care about. We ask that you ACT. We ask that you SHARE these resources with others. We ask that you REACH OUT. So no one has to feel alone.
And remember, we're only a call - or click- away. ysb.net
