How to Save a Life!!!

Yes, the title to this post is meant to be the same as the song "How to Save a life" by Fray. Have you ever listened to the lyrics of this song? Many of us have. We all know what the song is about, yet we are still afraid to talk about it. Do you know the signs of suicide and depression? Would you know how to save the life of a friend, loved one or classmate if they were in trouble?

THIS SUNDAY October 18th 6pm in Sky 3.2 lounge ESF senior counselor Heather Rice is presenting information on depression and suicide! Come... as a result you may save a life!!!

Pizza will be provided.
