For over 30 years, Teen Life Counts (TLC) has provided school-based suicide prevention and awareness to students in the Greater New Orleans community. This psychoeducational prevention curriculum utilizes professionally trained staff and volunteers to inform students about: teen suicide statistics, the stigma associated with mental illness, the warning signs of suicide, how to have a conversation with peers and adults, and where to get help. Additional educational programming is available for school staff, parents, mental health professionals and other Gatekeepers in the community. Thanks to generous donors, TLC is offered free of charge to middle and high school students at any public, private, parochial and charter schools upon request in the Greater New Orleans and surrounding area.
“It is very good to know that there are other people outside of a school setting, available readily to work with the children of New Orleans… Continue working in the recovery of our city!” – School professional, 2007
