If you are looking for resources on how to talk to your children about the dangers of using and abusing drugs, alcohol, and/or prescription medications, we have a place for you to start.  For conversation starters, prevention tips, warning signs, and a comprehensive drug guide visit Ohio's Start Talking website.

Helping children cope with loss

As administrators, teachers, counselors, and parents, we often struggle to find the right words to help children understand death, when we ourselves don’t have all of the answers.  If you are looking for ways to talk with your child about a death or tragedy, we encourage you to read our resource document Suggestions for Parents When Responding to a Death.  

Suicide Prevention Resources

We encourage you to join us in being vigilant, as we help our students cope with the recent death of a fellow student; watch for signs of depression, learn about the risk factors and warning signs for suicide, read and share stories of hope and recovery, and let our students know that if they are struggling, there is help and there is hope. 

Learn about the risk factors and warning signs from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
