Brandon Cole, a senior at Crestwood Area School District, was recently recognized by the Community Suicide Intervention Committee, sponsored by the Luzerne-Wyoming Counties Mental Health and Developmental Services (MH & DS), for his exemplary work in designing a Suicide Prevention brochure. Hundreds of the brochures will be distributed throughout Luzerne County school districts, community mental health centers and other community agencies.
The brochure, and accompanying poster, was part of Brandon’s Senior Project entitled “We Really Do Care” raising awareness of warning signs of suicide, causes of depression, preventative tips, along with hotline and resources to reach out for help. To access copies of the brochure and poster, call 570-408-1312 or e-mail: mhmr@mhmr. luzerne. pa. us
