In the past 5 years, 17 students from Commack High School have passed away and a number of these deaths have been students that have chosen to take their own lives. Its time to make a change!

If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or whispers a word of encouragement, or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD!

Feel free to share this petition with any friends or family. The more signatures the better!

Thank you for the overwhelming response and support for this petition.  We have had ____ people sign on in support of our efforts.  I have delivered several copies of the petition, along with all of the signatures and comments to the high school.  I have spoken directly to the school about our concerns and our desire to make sure that the issue of suicide awareness and prevention is addressed in the schools

 

The good news is that many programs already exist in the schools.  The better news is that even more programs will be provided for our community and the schools.  The high school is working with the NYS Office of Mental Health and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to bring a program to the Commack community to help us deal with and prevent this type of tragedy.  The high school will also be working with experts to look at additional programs to raise the awareness level of the students and staff regarding warning signs of suicide and how to get help.

It is time for our community to come together and take positive steps to dealing with this problem.  We all have a part to play.  Thank you again.

      Our schools need God. We took him out and what do we expect. Now we have killings, drugs, alcohol, depression, bullying, etc. We need God's covering.

      Let him back in to heal our schools!
