2. Tell, Tell, Tell
Stress that if someone hears another person is depressed or suicidal, he or she needs to tell someone who can help.
3. Resources
Educate on resources on the local and National resources that can help with depression and suicidal thoughts.
4. BE! Hives
Provide youth with an innovative system to anonymously tell an authority figure if he or she hears someone is depressed or suicidal.

       "The survey was very informative. I now know what to do if someone says that."
