Our newest Living Safer is here. The focus of this issue is teen suicide and its link to bullying. It’s a dark topic, but it’s especially relevant during these first weeks of a new school year. As parents, we have the responsibility to frequently check in with our children and ask about classmates, friendships, and any challenges they may be facing. It’s easy to miss the signs in our busy lives, so we encourage everyone to take a pause to read this important article to be informed.
These useful, family-centric topics are exactly why we are proud to publish Living Safer. Our work at Milestone is deeply personal, and we often work with families who are reeling from tragedy. We see firsthand how difficult it can be to try to return to some semblance of normalcy after a life-altering event — especially when a loved one’s life is cut prematurely short.
