Canon-McMillan High School is wrapping up National Suicide Prevention Week. The Boys Soccer team assisted the School Counseling Department on Thursday by passing out stickers and bracelets to students during school lunch periods, along with information on the new national crisis hotline number, 9-8-8.
In addition, they participated in a training during practice by the American Society for Suicide Prevention. The boys learned about the warning signs of a friend or family member or school mate that may be in crisis, as well as how to handle a situation when they are concerned about a friend. Members of the Shout club assisted on Friday by sharing a flyer about the SPHS Care Center offerings.
