Podcasting to Reach Parents
Limited Capacity full

I was recently sitting in an auditorium of 50 parents invited to an evening on suicide prevention weeks after a student in our district tragically took his life. Knowing that invitations when out to every parent at our high school and middle school, I become frustrated and immediately knew there was another way to get parents information we know they need. Out of this experience grew The Toolbox, our middle school counseling podcast aimed at parents to grow their own personal toolbox to help them help students.
