Signs of Suicide (SOS) Program at MFMS

To proactively address suicide awareness and prevention, all middle schools in CUSD are presenting the depression and Signs of Suicide (SOS) program. Suicide is currently the second leading cause of death among youth. This program has been used by thousands of schools in the USA for over twelve years. Data shows that this program increases awareness of depression and help-seeking behaviors of adolescents. We presented the SOS program to all 7th graders this year throughout the month of November.
