  • Bullying Awareness & Prevention Month

    Posted by AnnaGrace Baldwin on 10/8/2021

    Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance, and the behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.  

    Verbal, social and physical bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

  • Preventing Youth Suicide

    Posted by AnnaGrace Baldwin on 9/3/2021

    September is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month. We have HOPE because we can learn the warning signs of suicide and resources for help. We have HOPE because we can trust our gut when something does not feel right. We have HOPE because we can take the first step and start the conversation. "I'm worried about you. Tell me what's going on." Together, we have HOPE that we can prevent youth suicide.

    The Safe & Healthy Homewood Collaborative believes in tapping into the power of "many minds" to find ways to make Homewood safer and healthier for our children and youth. Parents and community organizations come together to develop ideas for parent education programs, newsletters, and social media posts. The primary focus areas are youth alcohol and drug abuse prevention, suicide awareness and prevention, and social media safety. This group talks about what we are doing, and what we can do, to make Homewood safer and healthier. All are welcome!

    Don’t forget to sleep! Getting enough sleep helps you grow and develop normally, pay attention throughout the day, and maintain overall health. For teens, this means about 8-10 hours each night.
