WHAT WE BELIEVE


 Mental Health is a very really issue that needs a great deal of attention.  It is a large umbrella with many different diagnosis.  By being educated on the signs and symptoms, of depression, particularly in children, we can have a greater chance of seeking professional help fast and giving our children the childhood they deserve; one without the sometimes paralyzing depression, sadness and anxiety.  When properly educated, children can, themselves, see the changes happening within them and ask for help. They deserve to be happy and healthy and live a life free from the symptoms of this illness.

As Morgan's mom I make a pledge to all parents and children to do what I can to make a difference.  I will go door to door like I'm selling cookies if I have to!  Please help me.

WARNING SIGNS

OF SUICIDE


Preoccupation with death


Suddenly happier, calmer


Loss of interest in things one cares about


Visiting or calling people to say goodbye


​Making arrangements; getting one's affairs in order


​Giving things away, such as prized

possessions



A suicidal person urgently needs to see a doctor or mental health profession.


If Someone you know appears to be depressed and is contemplating suicide, TAKE THAT PERSON SERIOUSLY!  Encourage them to seek the help of a mental health professional.  Because that person may feel so hopeless that they may not think it's possible to be helped, you'll probably have to be persistent and go with that person.  In an emergency, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273 TALK (8255) or 911

​The warning signs may mean someone is at risk for suicide.  Risk is greater if a behavior is new or has increased and if it seems related to a painful event, loss or change.
