Community Event to Offer Information on Suicide Prevention

Frisco ISD is joining forces with The Jason Foundation, a national organization dedicated to raising awareness about youth suicide.

Students, parents and community members are invited to attend a community event on Tuesday, October 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Board room at the Frisco ISD Administration Building, 5515 Ohio Drive in Frisco.

The event will feature a guest speaker, student panel and discussion of tools and resources to help identify and assist at-risk youth. The audience will be invited to sign commitment cards to be a friend (B1) to anyone who may be considering suicide.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 10-24. Frisco ISD is committed to supporting students, families and educators with the information they need to recognize warning signs and get help for those thinking of suicide.

For more information about the event, please contact the Guidance and Counseling Department at 469.633.6583.
