Middle and High School Students Can Make a Difference!

Do You Want To Help?

Here a just a few ways you can help spread the word about suicide prevention in your class, in your community and to support the work of The Samaritans of Rhode Island.

Note: It is against state and municipal  law in Rhode Island to post signs on public property including bridges and light poles or on private property without permission of appropriate authorities.  Please do NOT post our Crisis Hotline/Listening Line number without permission. State and local authorities will remove such signs.
