Last month during Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month, Tri-County Mental Health partnered with a popular local website called Kansas City Moms Blog to help share critical information to parents about what they can say and do to help their children struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide.

The post received tremendous response from the online community, and we wanted to continue the discussion on our own blog by sharing the original blog post here. We encourage shares to help us inform others about the importance of talking to our children and ensuring they’re safe during this very precarious time in their life.
