The "Kids Helping Kids" program, sponsored by www.ruok.help, helps
to inform youth of the importance of "giving back" and encouraging
their peers. We emphasize the value of "kids helping kids." Looking
out for one another and giving moral support to their friends is a
key life skill for all age groups. Young people should watch for
signs of despair or depression in their classmates and offer to
support them in getting help and finding the answers they need.
In this video created by Mayo Clinic, they describe common signs that a
young person is considering suicide and
provide encouragement for communicating directly and immediately for
support and safety. It also Includes suggestions for what to say to
a young person who may be at risk for suicide and ways to keep them
safe. Things can get better.
