The discussion planned with the authors of "Grown & Flown" on March 16 has been cancelled. We received word from our authors that out of an abundance of caution (they are from New York), they have to postpone their appearance next week. Our hope is to kick off the school year with "Grown and Flown" in September.

On November 7 and 14, 2019, the San Dieguito Union High School District hosted Stan Collins to speak on the topic of how to talk with your child and increase connectedness, awareness and self-harm and suicide prevention. The night provided our parent community with toolkit of prescriptive tips on how to help and support children socially and emotionally on a daily basis. Stan Collins is a Suicide Prevention Specialist at the San Diego County Suicide Prevention Council and has worked in the suicide prevention field for over 19 years. He has presented and provided training to over 650,000 adults and youth including educators, parents, medical professionals, military personnel, and law enforcement on the subject of suicide prevention.
