Episode 9: Make New Friends, But Keep The Old



It's National Best Friend Day! Take time this weekend to show your BFFs how much they mean to you. Whether it's spending some time together, or having a loooong phone call (there's always so much to catch up on!), let them know how lucky you are to have them!

By the way, did you know there's no federally funded suicide prevention program for adults?? We've all seen the news lately, and if you or someone you know is in need, don't be afraid to reach out for help. Learn about warning signs at http://www.bethe1to.com or call 1-800-273-8255 to reach the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. You are not alone.
