SUICIDE PREVENTION RESOURCES  

 

Youth Suicide Prevention 

The Just Let It Out Campaign was created as a safe place for youth to learn about and discuss topics that they might be too embarrassed to talk about in many social circles.  Topics vary from family or school issues, relationships, alcohol and other drugs, and thoughts of suicide and depression. Youth are encouraged to "Let it Out" or to find someone to help.  Check out the site at www.justletitout.org
