Teen Life Counts

Teen Life Counts (TLC) is a school-based suicide prevention and awareness program that was established in 1984. Teen Life Counts uses professional staff and 35 trained community volunteers to teach a suicide prevention program in 45 area schools. Last year, TLC reached 7,000 students and referred 500 students for counseling.

Students in the TLC program learn how to identify warning signs of depression and suicide, how to talk to a troubled friend, and where to go to get help. They are also taught the importance of breaking a secret to save a life and the danger of alcohol and substance abuse by those who are depressed or suicidal.

Be A Volunteer

Twice a year, JFS offers a two-day training for school professionals and community volunteers on suicide prevention. Volunteers must be 21 or older and need to be available during school hours to teach the curriculum. CEUs are also offered for social work professionals.

For more information or to inquire about upcoming trainings, please contact Tuyl Mogabgab by phone at (504) 831-8475 or by email at tlc@jfsneworleans.org.
