The Willamette Education Service District has partnered with YouthLine, a peer-to-peer youth crisis and support service provided by Lines for Life, a nonprofit dedicated to preventing substance abuse and suicide in Oregon. YouthLine operates a helpline that provides crisis support and referrals via phone, text, chat, and email. It also operates a peer-supported outreach program to destigmatize mental health challenges, increase awareness for mental health and wellness, and encourages youth to reach out for help. As a participating school district with the Willamette Education Service District, the following materials are provided to help you promote awareness around suicide in your school.
Following is a "toolkit" which consists of social media memes, posters, and sample letters to students and parents with information regarding the Oregon Youthline and suicide prevention.
