Monthly Newsletter | November 2019
Having Conversations with Compassion
November is a time when familiar transitions begin: the days are shortening , temperatures are falling, and the holidays are fast approaching. It's also a time of important observances, including Homeless Youth Awareness Month , National Adoption Month , and International Survivors of Suicide Day . For some, this season is a time of celebration and unity; for others, it's a time of business, stress, or even sadness.

Whatever this time of year means for you, we encourage you to remember the ways you can support the young people in your life. Having conversations about what they see in the world and the challenges they face helps to support their emotional well-being.

Check out some of the latest additions to our library below, and as always, please help us to spread the word!
