SOS (Signs of Suicide) launches updated DVD, Friends for Life: Preventing Teen Suicide

Screening for Mental Health has released a new DVD and discussion guide with three new, compelling real-life stories. The DVD includes: interviews with teens who have struggled with mental health issues; interviews with school counselors and other mental health professionals; and four professionally acted vignettes that illustrate issues related to bullying and academic pressure. These revised materials are a main component of the SOS prevention program and are designed to raise awareness, destigmatize mental illness, and give students the help-seeking tools they need to help themselves or a friend.
