Help Save a Life Today!

Every now and then – a very small project with a very big heart and purpose comes along!  BSL was really honoured to work together with the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa recently to help create the “Know What to Do – Preventing Youth SuicideK-Card.  Quite simply – if you know of anyone that is experiencing any of these signs – this pocket-sized guide very clearly helps you know what to do next!
