SUICIDE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMMING IN NSBORO

Signs of Suicide (SOS) is an evidence-based suicide prevention program for adolescents.  

Students in 7th, 9th, and 11th grade will participate in this program as part of our Wellness programming.

When teens are struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, it is common for them to turn to each other. This is why it’s important for every student to know when to ACT (ACKNOWLEDGE the signs of suicide or depression, Show that you CARE, and TELL an adult).
