LIST: Suicide Prevention Resources

(WLTX) - May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we're spending time focused on a subject that we really feel needs to be talked about - suicide prevention.

You've likely heard of the Netflix series '13 Reasons Why." It's a drama about suicide and it's causing concern among parents, school leaders, and those in the suicide prevention world.

Why? Some say it glamorizes or romanticizes suicide. Others say it brings awareness to the issue. Either way, if you’re struggling or your kids are struggling, we have resources.
