A word from our President & CEO, Lisa J. Rahman

March 25th, 2019 - JFS Marketing & Communications

Our hearts are with the family members and the community who have lost their loved ones recently to tragedy. Yesterday, community organizations were brought together to discuss how to help and prevent such tragedies from occurring. Suicide is the second leading cause of preventable death in individuals from ages 14 to 24 and the third leading cause of preventable death in college students. Parents, please open up the dialogue with your children. The power of your words can make a difference. Talk to your children, listen, and ask these questions:

Resources:
– National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-TALK OR 1-800-273-8255
– Broward 211

Our counseling centers, Behavioral Health Associates of Broward, (with locations in Parkland and Davie) are open to seeing clients affected by the most recent tragedy, regardless of means to pay. Call 954-909-0888.
