The Breakfast Club offers safe place for community

Caroline Cooney, Editor in Chief

Last year, a group of students from the class of 2016 established The Breakfast Club with the hopes of creating an outlet for those in the community who need a support system. On Monday, Jan. 2, members of The Breakfast Club gathered together in the senior classroom with Mobile Crisis Team Manager Sue Lichtfuss for a six-hour training session. During this time, they learned listening techniques, as well as how to recognize warning signs of suicide.

The Breakfast Club will be available every Wednesday in the Brown Room at 7:30 a.m. for anyone who needs to talk. While the peer counselors are not there to offer advice, they will listen to you and show their support.

Remember, you are not alone. If you or a loved one is considering suicide, please reach out and get the help you deserve.
