NCASD Emergency Response Guide for Parents

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please make sure to also reference other safety information posted on our website at www.ncasd.com 

Suicide Prevention Awareness Month 2022

The annual observances of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in September, along with National Suicide Prevention Week (September 4th-10th) and World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10th), provide us with the opportunity to acknowledge, support, educate, and advocate. We must acknowledge suicide as a public health issue that impacts individuals, families, and entire communities. We must support each other, including those impacted by suicide and those who have experienced suicidal thoughts or attempts. We must raise awareness, reduce stigma, and educate on suicide warning signs and how to reach out, and we must continue to advocate for suicide prevention efforts as a priority at the national, state, and local level.

For more information and additional resources related to suicide awareness and prevention, click HERE for the September 2022 Suicide Prevention Guide.
