Did you know that 7 out of 10 young people would tell a friend if they are having thoughts of suicide? Research shows that peers have a greater impact as protective factors during adolescence than parents do. This year, the Jordan Elizabeth Harris Foundation has the honor and privilege of bringing the 1st ever Hope Squads, a suicide prevention program for young people, to Texas, and right here in Tarrant County. This ground-breaking program will change the culture of help-seeking within our schools.
