MAY 2020
The Covid-19 Virus has brought many changes to our lives and has drastically changed the operation of RU?OK. For example, we closed the after school hangout in Belleville, we cancelled the upcoming fall suicide prevention school assemblies, postponed the opening of our new youth center in Ypsilanti, and delayed most of our community resiliency projects for the summer. However, listed below are some our proposed changes.

NEW WEBSITE DESIGN

NEW BILLBOARD
Our community has come together to sponsor a suicide prevention electronic billboard at I-94 and Huron Street in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Many thanks to Adams Outdoor Advertising, Ann Arbor District Library, Washtenaw Alive and RU?OK. Also, thanks to Beth Freund Manuel, Elizabeth Garza, Anne Daws-Lazar and Linda Fuller Weatherly for your work to get this project completed in one day.

NEW FACEBOOK SUPPORT GROUP

https://www.facebook.com/groups/ruoksupportgroup
This group page has been created to support and encourage those who might be depressed or discouraged...or perhaps would like to share their experiences or just talk to someone. It is all about suicide awareness and prevention.

Rules:
1) Always be non-judgmental
2) No bullying will be tolerated
3) Don't add to someone's heavy burden
4) Respect the privacy of those in the group. Don't re-post or paste their comments.
