Resources to Support Your Family's Well-Being

Your relationship with the children in your care builds the foundation for their lifelong physical and mental health. What we learn and experience during the first few years of life stays with us and whether those experiences are positive and help to build resilience determines our future success in academia, friendships, and relationships as we reach maturity.

We are a resource for you. We work to provide helpful, reliable, and scientifically-sound resources for you to promote family and child well-being and resilience.

Crisis and Warm Lines

Suicide Prevention

Suicide is the third leading cause of death for children ages 10-24 in Florida, making teenage suicide a serious and growing problem. Everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention, and schools, families, and communities can provide help and support for children and teens.

Suicidal individuals may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean they don't want it. Most suicidal people are deeply conflicted about ending their lives and wish there was an alternative. If you suspect someone is considering suicide, talking openly about suicidal thoughts can save a life.
