Join NHSD and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for More Than Sad, a suicide prevention program for parents/guardians of teen youth.
Approximately 90 minutes long, More than Sad teaches parents how to recognize signs of depression and other mental health problems; initiate a conversation about mental health with
their child; and get help.
Nadine Engel from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is this year’s featured presenter. The event will be held in the North Hills High School library, on the second floor, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15 to coincide with the National Suicide Prevention Month and World Suicide Prevention Day on Sept. 10.
All September long, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness. World Suicide Prevention Day is a time to remember those affected by suicide, to raise awareness, and to focus efforts on directing treatment to those who need it most.
The More Than Sad family of programs has taught over a million students, parents and educators how to be smart about mental health.
