September is Suicide Prevention Month. While ASYSST is assisting students throughout the year, suicide is one of the many areas we focus on. This year's theme is HELP, take one post one. There is a help sign posted outside of one of our offices, students can take a Post-It Note with a positive affirmation that speaks to or means something to him/her. Students can then, share it with his/her family, loved ones and friends. There are also resources listed. In addition, we encourage the students to post positive affirmations to our Google classroom, to be a support to their fellow classmates.
I challenge you all, to post a post affirmation for yourself or one that may help someone else.
Speak up, Speak out, you are not alone. We can all help each other.
I am so grateful to work alongside you, Shakita. Our community is so fortunate to have ASYSST, especially during this difficult time for students and school personnel. Thank you for all you do to support and empower our youth!
