WHY IT’S CRITICAL RIGHT NOW
We’re all adapting to a New Normal. Coronavirus has changed our jobs, our homes, our kids’ schooling. And every parent is trying to adjust, to manage their changed work situation and changed home situation. We’re all worried. None of us know what’s coming next. And nor do our kids.
While we wrestle with how best to manage our changed day-to-day logistics and lives, our children are wrestling with the same things. And doing it without what keeps them grounded: school, sports, band or orchestra practice, theater, engineering club, physical contact with friends.
We know that suicide rates increase at times of stress, disconnection and loss of purpose, and our kids are experiencing all of these right now. So now, more than ever, it’s critical for parents to understand the basics of suicide prevention.
Professionals who work with families are also welcome to attend.
