Educational guide on suicide and OUD, high-risk populations, causes, prevention, what to do if a loved one is showing signs of being at risk of self-harm or suicide, and more.
Enrolling in college as a student with a mental health disorder doesn’t need to be overwhelming or intimidating. Students who know their rights and learn how to ask for assistance can go on to complete their degree and have a positive educational experience in the process.
To help students find the assistance they need, a guide was created to explain the resources and accommodations most schools provide and offer tips on how to access these mental health services.

Social media has become a normal part of everyday life. As parents, we take for granted that companies such as Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook have our teenager’s best interests at heart.
However, recent disclosures have revealed that Social Media Platforms use complex algorithms and psychological manipulation to maximize screen time allowing damaging posts and hurtful communications to be fed to vulnerable kids.
Effects of this include a 56 percent increase in suicide for the 10-24 age group from 2007 to 2017 which experts have attributed to their increased social media and screen time.
