We also want to support parents during this difficult time as they help support their children and one another through the grief process. With this in mind, we will host a forum for parents tomorrow evening at 6:30 led by Dr. Larry Berkowitz, the Director of Riverside Community Care, and a nationally recognized speaker on supporting schools and communities following the suicide of a young person. In addition Dr. Berkowitz will be available to speak with parents on a walk-in bases on Wednesday morning from 8-10 a.m. Dr. Berkowitz has also provided us with the following list of Suicide Prevention Resources.
If you need to speak with someone in regards to this community tragedy, we encourage you to call the BHS Guidance Office at 781 270-1856 or the Burlington Community Life Center at 781 270-1961. You can also reach me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my phone by clicking on the call me link on the right side of this blog.
