The goal is to prevent additional suicides among our teens (and others) by teaching the signs of depression and substance abuse.
A Walk Along the Shore for Suicide & Depression Awareness needs your support! Come out to walk in memory of someone you know who died too early or by suicide. We walk to remove the stigmas attached to suicide and depression. Plus it's a fun walk! Register here!
NEW Save the Teen Grief Support Group starting October 2! Free sessions which include art therapy, journaling, and learning how to understand your feelings dealing with a death. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
We also hold public groups for teens in a church in Wake Forest. Contact Carolyn Zahnow if you'd like to attend a group. New groups are formed in the fall and spring. They run for 8 consecutive weeks and include art therapy.
We hope you'll support The Shore so it can grow and help even more individuals through the murky water of grief. People do better with their grief if they can share with someone who is going through the same emotions they are.
Need a speaker? Bring Save the Teens to your group! Accepting reservations for future speaking dates. Contact us for additional information.
Carolyn Zahnow lost her son and only child, Cameron Stephenson, in 2005 to the demons that occupied his mind. Her hope is that by sharing her story and experiences other parents, teachers, mentors of teens, and teens themselves, will become more aware to the signs and symptoms of teen depression and substance abuse and then know what to do about it.
Do not become one of the parents who attend survivor of suicide support groups who whispers ..... "If only I'd seen the signs."
Learn the signs and save your teen!
Yes, there's hope and as long as we all believe in that, then we WILL save teens!
Every life is worth living.
