Our goal is to equip Lafayette County’s youth with healthy lifestyle tools designed to strengthen the family unit. The Brighter Futures Consortium includes all six Lafayette County public school districts.

National Suicide Prevention Week
Suicide prevention is everyone’s business and anyone can participate in National Suicide Prevention Week. Suicide and suicidal behavior affects individuals of all ages, genders, races and religions across the planet. Suicide affects more men than women in all countries but China. Risk factors remain essentially the same from country to country. Mental illness, substance abuse, previous suicide attempts, hopelessness, access to lethal means, recent loss of loved ones, unemployment and vulnerability to self-harm are just a few examples of risk factors. Protective factors are also the same in all corners of the world. High self-esteem, social connectedness, problem-solving skills, supportive family and friends are all examples of   factors that buffer against suicide and suicidal behaviors.                                                                    Organized by American Association of Suicidology.
