September was Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Taking care of ourselves and others is important, particularly now when many people are feeling stressed, anxious and worried about the future. But where do you start looking for help if you or someone you know is struggling? What are some of the warning signs of suicide? What suicide prevention resources are available locally in our community and our schools?

The 90-minute webinar answers these questions and the full list of resources can be found below.
