Please also feel free to make a donation in any amount as we are raising funds for our Store it Safe Teen program.  We are closing in on our goal and grateful for your support!

We look forward to sharing more about the Store it Safe program at the event. This new program is poised save lives by “Reversing the Trend of Irreversible Actions” that occur in adolescent suicide. We know that by identifying teens with mental health concerns and providing appropriate interventions, suicides can be prevented. We also know that creating barriers to the most lethal means for suicide, like firearms and prescription medications, can keep teens safe – even those who have not yet been identified as at increased risk for suicide.

The Ohio AAP is focusing on two specific actions to make this information widespread:

  • Providing Education – By increasing the knowledge of pediatricians, other healthcare providers, and school-based professionals, we will improve the recognition of adolescent suicide risks through depression screening and providing resources for families, including lock boxes to promote safe storage of firearms and other lethal means.
  • Developing Public Policy – The Ohio AAP supports a tax credit for families to purchase lock boxes and/or other security measures for safe storage solutions for their home.

We will also be equipped to take payment onsite via credit, check (made out to Ohio AAP), cash and Venmo.

If you have any questions on the day of event, please contact Elizabeth Dawson via cell at 614-570-4068.

Safe travels to NOLA, cheers to an amazing weekend!
