Signs of Suicide

The Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) has provided a variety of initiatives to address the many topics of mental health.  One of the initiatives include a proactive approach to the issues and concerns of suicide.  GMS will be presenting lessons during the month of November to all students using the Signs of Suicide Prevention Program adopted by the county.  A letter was sent home with your child pertaining this information.  This letter is attached to this email.  Please feel free to contact our counseling office if you have any questions.
