Sherman ISD Suicide Prevention

  • Sherman ISD believes that all students are unique and valuable.  We want to support our students in the many challenges they face so that they can live happy healthy lives. 

    According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 1 in 5 youth ages 13 to 18 lives with a mental condition.  Depressions puts a person at higher risk for suicide, which is the second leading cause of death for Texas youth ages 10 to 24.  When ignored, mental health disorders can lead to life-threatening consequences.

    Sherman ISD has partnered with several local and national agencies to combat youth suicide.

    We all can all help prevent suicide.  The 988 Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress. Find more information at :
