The Mid Valley Jr/Sr High School presented a suicide prevention & mental Health awareness presentation to grades 7-10 on Tuesday March 4th. The Lou Ruspi Jr Foundation provided the program free of charge to help the students identify warning sign & symptoms and to understand the importance of reducing the mental health stigma.
The school plans to have the foundation back before the end of the school year to present to the 11th and 12th graders.
