EAGLES' HAVEN IS NOW OPEN!

The Broward County community lost two survivors of the MSD shooting to suicide last week. In light of these tragedies, an Emergency Response meeting was held to discuss how to ensure our students, teachers and parents receive the education they need to prevent the next suicide.

Parents, please talk to your children, Students, talk to each other. “Just ask, just listen.” Every day ask the important questions below (click here for printable version):

1. Have you wished you were dead or wished you could go to sleep and not wake up?

2. Have you actually had any thoughts about killing yourself? If the loved one answers “yes” to question 2, ask questions 3, 4, 5 and 6. If the person answers “no” to question 2, go directly to question 6.

3. Have you thought about how you might do this?

4. Have you had any intention of acting on these thoughts of killing yourself, as opposed to you have the thoughts but you definitely would not act on them?

5. Have you started to work out or worked out the details of how to kill yourself? Do you intend to carry out this plan?

6. Always ask this question: In the past three months, have you done anything, started to do anything, or prepared to do anything to end your life?

Talking To Youth about MSD (NBC News)

In June 2016, the CSC asked our partners at Tomorrow's Rainbow to help share information on how to talk to children about horrific events like the one that had just happened at The Pulse, in Orlando. Sadly, this information is most relevant once again, following the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14.

The Faces of CSC

The greatest tool you can give a child is the ability to persuade and speak with confidence. Being that my YIG experience positively impacted my emotional literacy skills, I would like to pass these on to those who are less fortunate.
"This program has touched me and made a difference in my life."
"I will be the first to say, Youth in Government should be a part of every teenager's life, because I know without it I wouldn't be the person I am."
