JHS SBHC Participates in Jamestown Out of the Darkness Walk

The Jamestown High School’s School Based Health Center (SBHC) staff, students and families recently participated in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention WNY Chapter’s 4th Annual Jamestown Out of the Darkness Walk.

Over 40 JHS participants were involved in the walk, which brings together survivors of suicide, their friends and supporters from towns all over Chautauqua County. In this country, every 13 minutes, someone dies by suicide.

“This was a wonderful community event for our SBHC students to support,” said Debbie Piotrowski, JHS SBHC’s Nurse Practitioner. “We participated in the walk as many in our community have experienced the loss of a loved one through suicide and wanted to get youth involved with a community event that may have affected them as well.”
