AS+K? About Suicide to Save A Life

Suicide prevention happens when people and communities come together. When we know what to look for, pay attention to those around us, and act when we see something, we will reduce the number of deaths by suicide. But where do we begin? Whether you are a professional, a worried parent, or a concerned friend, AS+K training provides resources to help you learn the signs to look for, how to talk to someone about what they are feeling, and where to go for more help.
