Suicide Resources


If you are a student and concerned about your friend, it is very important to get a trusted adult involved immediately. If you are a parent concerned about your child, obtain professional help for your child, increase your supervision, and remove any lethal means from their ready access. Many people are hesitant to ask directly about suicide for fear that they will be planting the idea in the mind of the person. Asking them directly about thoughts of suicide provides them an opportunity to unburden themselves and to receive the support and services they need.


If you’re thinking about suicide, are worried about a friend or loved one, or would like emotional support, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433) or 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text "MT" to 741741 (a free 24/7 text line for people in crisis) where trained crisis responders are available 24 hours a day. Do not leave a suicidal individual alone. If a suicide attempt has been made, immediately contact 911.

RISE was established on August 1, 2016 as a non-profit corporation founded by Chantelle Plauché. Its vision is a community-wide, integrated system of support, in which children have safe spaces to work and play while being guided toward self-sustaining success. RISE has at its core the understanding that young people should be empowered to choose the course of their own futures. However, some among them may not have observed or even imagined viable options due to their life circumstances. Limited by their vision of what is possible, their lives and choices often become restricted to a survival-level struggle. The mission of RISE is to empower children at their most vulnerable by offering opportunities and fostering connection.

RISE’s values are to support strong, self-sufficient habits in young people so they may choose and sustain a healthy, fully functional, and productive life as a citizen of their world. Another core value of RISE is its inclusivity: its programs do not only serve one facet of the community, but bring youth together to share their skills, stories, and experiences.

In a word, the goal of RISE is connection: to opportunities, to each other, to the community, to the world. These opportunities are partly structured in RISE programming and shaped by its values, and partly emerge from the youth participants, as they begin to explore their interests and develop them with guidance.

Substance Abuse
"Many people who are addicted to drugs are also diagnosed with other mental disorders, including anxiety and depression. Some people develop mental health problems related to their compulsive drug use, and some people take drugs in an attempt to alleviate symptoms of mental health disorders. Whatever symptoms appear first, it is important to treat all mental illnesses at the same time." -National Institute on Drug Abuse
