A New Resource for Chittenden County Youth
We are pleased to partner with the Junior League of Champlain Valley to produce and distribute the "Chittenden County Youth Suicide Prevention Booklet."
HowardCenter’s First Call 24/7/365 crisis service for children and families developed content for the booklet, and the Junior League generously reprinted the booklet as part of its focus on suicide awareness.
The League distributed the pamphlet to Chittenden County organizations, including police departments, libraries, and primary care practices. To request a copy of the booklet, contact First Call at 488-7777.
