Our TSA members have been busy at work for the past few months, especially in these last few weeks. The annual TSA Regional conference took place on January 14 at the Pittsburgh Technical Institute, and a majority of our students attended this year. This conference determined who will continue onto the TSA State conference in the spring.

 

            Mr. Benjamin Holmes, Mrs. Kristin Holmes and Mr. Jason Roos were the teachers that accompanied the students to the conference this year. They each believe the students did very well and said, “It was an amazing year and all of the kids were willing and eager to do their best.” This was the largest attended regional conference with over 400 kids from the region. The Division one schools are made up with Blackhawk, Fox Chapel, Pine Richland, Ambridge, Hampton, North Allegheny, Avonworth and Mohawk high schools.

Suicide Prevention Program PDF Print E-mail

Dear Parent or Guardian:
 
The teen years are marked by a rollercoaster ride of emotions---difficult for teens, their parents and educators. It is easy to misread depression as normal adolescent turmoil; however depression appears to be occurring at a much earlier age, and the past decade has seen teen suicide rates double.
 
In order to address this issue, The Ambridge Senior  High School is offering the SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program to the entire 10th grade class
 
Our goals in participating in this program are straightforward:
 

 

  • To help our students understand that depression is a treatable illness, and help them assess whether or not they may have symptoms consistent with depression
  • To explain that suicide is preventable tragedy that often occurs as a result of untreated depression
  • To provide students training in how to identify serious depression and potential suicidality in a friend.
  • To impress upon teens that they can help themselves or a friend by taking the simple step of talking to a responsible adult about their concerns

 

 
If you have questions or concerns about the program or about the screening please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Cristen McCoy, Mrs. Jill Manns or Mrs. Noel Santini @ 724 266 2833 ext 2102
