Students at Cajon High who signed up to be part of the mental health pipeline project, received training on suicide prevention from Kryssel Elson  from South Coast Community Services. The training, known as SAFE Talk certifies the students to be suicide alert helpers. They each received a booklet that helps them identify if someone is having suicidal thoughts and a resource card of places to go for help. The training is strictly preventative and should not be confused with intervention training. Marwa Mohamed, IHPC Outreach Specialist, and Psychology teacher/advisor Chris Peters plan to train all 120 students in the project.
