Family & Children’s Services marks National Suicide Prevention Month with the new campaign “Tomorrow Needs You.” Through the campaign, F&CS raises awareness, encourages honest conversations about suicide, shares prevention best practices and where to ask for help.
In addition, F&CS presents “Talk Saves Lives,” an American Foundation of Suicide Prevention educational program with area students. F&CS COPES (Community Outreach Psychiatric Emergency Services) team, Tulsa Public Schools (TPS) and the Tulsa Center for Behavorial Health will share details about their innovative partnership as well as short videos with tips on how to spot warning signs for someone contemplating suicide and how to get help. The short videos will be available via the F&CS Facebook and Instagram pages.
Other F&CS community events include the Out of Darkness Walk, Ahha Tulsa mural creation, Tomorrow Needs You Chalking event and the Veteran’s Administration Resource Fair. View the Flickr album featuring local high school students here.
