Suicide Prevention Week Hits Assumption


The week of Sept. 8 starts a nationwide suicide prevention week dedicated to promoting and recognizing suicide awareness. National Suicide Prevention Day is Wednesday, Sept. 10, but will be celebrated throughout the whole week of Sept. 8 to 12 at Assumption. This is the first year Assumption will recognize this week as a school.

There are popular activities that people across the map participate in during the week such as wearing yellow and writing “love” on their wrists in honor of those who have self-harmed or attempted suicide. Assumption will partake in these activities, as well as having speakers come in to the senior religion classes. The idea was thought up by Jennifer Buckman, senior, for her action plan in her Catholic Social Teaching class last year. Buckman says she is so passionate about the cause because she has had experience with friends and knows what it feels like.

A video will be shown during homeroom on Monday, Sept. 8, to kick off the week.
