The Newton Partnership is actively engaged in Newton Cares: The Coalition for Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Awareness and encourages community members to join the coalition as well.
Many people feel stressed and sometimes helpless at some point in time. Hurting yourself is never the answer. The Newton Cares website has listings of local and national resources, as well as an anonymous online mental health screening. If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
Never worry alone, reach out.
