Suicide Awareness Month

Kalispell Public Schools is working to prevent suicide in our schools and community.

 

We encourage people to follow the ACT steps if you hear someone talking about hurting themself or others:

 

Acknowledge: Listen to the person who is struggling, don’t ignore threats.

Care: let your friend know you care.

Tell: Tell a trusted adult or call the Suicide Lifeline 24/7 for help at 1-800-275-talk (8255) OR Text “Help” to 741-741

 

Please Speak Up! You may save someone’s life!
