Make a Donation to help NOW with teen suicide prevention!
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among kids aged 11-18. 90% of kids who die by suicide demonstrate warning signs of suicidal intentions.
HERE Now (Helping, Engaging, Reconnecting, and Educating Now) responds to the urgent need for teen suicide prevention programs in San Diego County. HERE Now is working to prevent youth suicide, suicidal ideation, and help foster safe school environments through suicide and bullying prevention education. HERE Now is a collaborative program led by North County Lifeline in partnership with San Diego Youth Services, South Bay Community Services, and San Diego County school districts.
HERE Now conducts presentations at school campuses to educate 7th – 12th grade youth and their families about suicide risk factors – providing awareness and the knowledge needed to get help for troubled youth. Plus, HERE Now is changing the status quo by teaching education professionals how to recognize and respond to the warning signs; reducing the social stigma attached to those who seek mental health services; implementing bullying prevention efforts; and establishing a system of service that identifies vulnerable youth before they attempt suicide.
WHO THEY HELP:
HERE Now serves students in middle and high schools throughout San Diego County.
