Sept 7 – 14th has been designated as Suicide Prevention Week.  At SM Northwest, we want every week to be suicide prevention week.  If you or someone you know is depressed, going through a rough time,  or having thoughts of suicide, please come to the counseling office and ask to speak with one of our social workers or counselors.  Our student support groups for first semester will also begin in October.   These groups focus on stress management, and coping with anxiety.   Please see Ms. Hartman in the counseling office for more information.
