Suicide Prevention Awareness
You Matter! You Belong!
The Suicide Prevention Resource Center in conjunction with the International Association for Suicide Prevention has prepared a briefing expressing concern about the risks and negative impact on young people, in particular for those who are vulnerable and currently thinking about suicide.
The second season of 13 Reasons Why (13RW) is set to air on Netflix on May 18, 2018. The Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) assembled a list of resources to help you talk about the series and suicide risk and prevention.
