September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

Elizabeth Rous
In keeping with our mission of educating the whole child, Hampton Roads Academy is committed to promoting self-care and mental wellness.  In recognition of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, you are encouraged to talk to your child about mental health and the importance of stress management.  
While talking about mental health can seem daunting, stay positive and validate your child’s feelings.  Model appropriate stress management techniques and keep the lines of communication open.

If you have concerns about your child or teen, make an appointment with their pediatrician.  HRA counselors are also available during the school day.  For Middle School students, call Ashley Spruill at 884-9145. For Upper School students, call Liz Rous at 884-9387.
