September is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month. This year, Yellow Ribbon and Fellowship of Christian Athletes clubs put together a week of activities and events to promote mental health and bring attention to suicide prevention.
On August 25, the Wabaunsee High School Student Council invited Chet Kuplan, CEO of Sports in Kansas, to speak to all High School and Junior High students.
“I had seen the posts of visits to schools throughout the last year. Comments made were positive and I felt that due to the impact social media has on all this could benefit students and even adults,” said STUCO adviser Amy Cassell.
