College Connection Academy is taking charge this month and raising awareness through a series of presentations they will be giving to students across their campus. Additionally, they will have posters throughout their campus with a tip line which can be contacted 24 hours a day. During their community activism class, students researched warning signs of suicidal thoughts and had a discussion as a group, lead by their teacher. Please see below for helpful resources for parents and families.
