The statistics are sobering. The growing crisis of suicide affects all age groups and communities. Over 800,000 people die of suicide every year in the world. The age group with the highest suicide rate is 45 to 65 year olds. In the vulnerable teen community, suicide is the second cause of death for American children ages 10 – 14 and 18 to 24. Acknowledging the magnitude of the problem and its sensitivity, in early May, the SOURCE, Red Bank Regional’s (RBR) school-based counseling program, hosted an intimate, frank conversation for its parental community on the subject. In the casual and welcoming environment of a parent’s home, SOURCE Director Suzanne Keller, along with guest speakers Mary Fowler and Phyllis Alongi from the Upstream Suicide Prevention (through the RWJBH Institute for Prevention and Recovery) spoke to RBR parents about suicide, its signs, how to listen, respond and how to help. Upstream Suicide Prevention is a county-funded grant program.

Ms. O’Connor had also brought the BLICK competition to her class’s attention, as it is mandatory for all RBR VPA studio art majors to enter at least two competitions each school year. The BLICK contest requested students to submit entries that most connected them to art.
