CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

The American Red Cross and Savannah Chatham Public School officials working to stay aware of your student's mental health.

They held a Suicide Awareness Workshop Thursday at the Red Cross's headquarters.

Officials discussed ways to identify and make internal and external stakeholders, along with members of the community of suicide. While also discussing ways to handle the signs and potential inside the school system and throughout the community.

“Suicide has no face, it has no gender, it has no race, and it has no age. So you just have to know your students. So what we say is "Look for the Look For". Sometimes Students withdraw, become depressed, sometimes they become outwardly overt, so you just have to know your student,” said Quentina Miller-Fields, director of student affairs.

September is Suicide Awareness and Prevention month, and Thursday is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Day.
