Teen Suicide Prevention Program

The Teen Suicide Prevention Symposium was adopted as a project of the Junior League of Waco in 2005, in partnership with Baylor University and The American Football Coaches Association. The TSPS serves the community by providing education and information about suicide prevention and education to individuals, organizations and agencies that work with today's youth.

The Junior League of Waco, McLennan Community College and the Region 12 Education Service Center are proud to sponsor our 9th Annual Teen Suicide Prevention Symposium. Suicide is the third leading cause of death amoung our teens.   Most of them give some warning before attempting suicide, providing us an opportunity to help prevent this horrific outcome.  This year we will focus on Cyber-bullying and include informative presentations covering prevention strategies, risk assessment, recovery programs as well as, how traumatic death affects grief and healing.  The Symposium will take place on 2/4/14 at Region 12 ESC.  Please join us- your attendance may just save a life someday.
