SEPTEMBER IS SUICIDE PREVENTION AWARENESS MONTH
September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month —a time to share resources and inspirational stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. Visit NAMI here for some great resources/links.
This year’s CIT's from Nobles Day Camp in Dedham chose to raise money for KyleCares.
Millis High School Recipient of
KyleCares $3,000 Grant
Millis High School will use this Grant to partner with Minding Your Mind, an organization whose primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators.

A portion of the funding will go toward Q.P.R. Suicide Prevention Training with the staff of the both the middle and high schools. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer, and the QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, proactive and proven suicide prevention training.

“The statistics related to student stress, anxiety, depression, and suicide are sobering. This grant will help us as a school be more proactive in identifying concerning behaviors and ideations, provide a safe environment for students to discuss mental health and seek help, and provide training and education to both teachers and parents on adolescent mental health”, noted principal Bob Mullaney.
