The Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School District, at the request of the Assistant Superintendent/Principal, has been selected for participation in the S.O.S. Suicide Prevention Program. The program is sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
The S.O.S. (Signs of Suicide) Program has been implemented in more then 1,300 schools nationwide. The program teaches students about the link between suicide and depression and that suicide is preventable. Students who participate in S.O.S. achieve a greater understanding of the importance of identifying risk in themselves and others.
Additional information about the S.O.S. Suicide Prevention Program can be received from Guidance Counselors Anne Spirlet and Robert Sherman in the Old Colony Guidance Office at 508-763-8011, ext. 126.
