Let's put an end to bullying

Listen To Our Voices 

Some of the many warning signs of suicide include:  

Depression, sadness, withdrawal from others, trouble sleeping or eating, and even discussions about death.


According to studies by Yale University, bullying victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims.  Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people. 10 to 14 year-old girls may be at a higher risk for suicide.  30 % of students are either bullies or victims of bullying.


People who are contemplating suicide should talk to someone right away or go to an emergency room for help.  The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-273-8255.  


GET HELP...YOU ARE NOT ALONE....YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SUFFER IN SILENCE... 


The Center for Disease Control suggests a strong link between bullying and suicide.
