SOS Signs of Suicide® Prevention Program is an award-winning,

the symptoms of depression and signs of suicide in themselves or their
friends, and encourages seeking help through the use of the ACT®
technique (Acknowledge, Care, Tell). The Counselors will be presenting this vital information to
Seniors in their Social Studies classes September 16-19, 2014 and to
Juniors on October 6-9, 2014. NOTE: Last year the program was presented
to ninth grade students; this year’s
ninth grade students received the information in middle school.
