Let's hope our 2019 numbers of youth receiving this curriculum is even higher!
As we continue to schedule our services in Health classrooms for this school year, we also participate in many educational and community opportunities / events.
As members of the Orleans County Suicide Prevention Coalition, we attended the second annual GOW Pathway to Hope Suicide Prevention and Awareness Breakfast held on World Suicide Prevention Day. Remember, our local Care & Crisis Hotline number is 585-283-5200. It is free, confidential, 24/7, and available for you, or anyone who may be struggling.
We were thrilled for the opportunity to donate hygiene items to the Albion Middle School Nurses office for the 2019-2020 school year. We hope everything gets put to good use!
