For All Seasons in the Community

Several staff from For All Seasons gave a suicide prevention presentation at Lockerman Middle School to the after school students through Rec and Parks. “We were asked to talk about Suicide prevention and link it to what teens are learning from the show Thirteen Reasons Why. We talked about identifying someone who may need help and how you can help someone who may show signs of being suicidal”, states Coleen Lynn, a Clinician with For All Seasons.

Thirteen Reasons Why, is a 2007 young adult novel written by Jay Asher. The book is the basis of the television series on Netflix in March 2017.
