HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - September is suicide awareness month. Crisis Services of North Alabama recently got a three-year grant. They're using that money to launch two new suicide prevention programs.

That's according to our news partners The Huntsville Times/

One of the programs will be offered to 10th grade students at Huntsville City Schools. The program is called Lifeline and will help teach students, teachers and parents how to communicate with someone considering suicide.

The other program is called QPR: Question, Persuade, Refer. The purpose is to help people who are high risk or thinking about suicide. It will be available to churches and clubs.

CSNA also offers a 24-hour helpline. That number is (256) 716-1000.
