(Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Division of Career Education. 2008) It seems that while dealing with youth, teachers and those adults in the school setting would have much contact with possibly suicidal youth and would be able to recognize some of the signs. Unfortunately, only four counselors in the state have this training, they are available to schools on a limited basis.

For families in crisis, such as single mom and baby who were featured in the article from the American Public Welfare Association there are many resources available in Missouri. The Missouri Department of Social Services offers programs through Family-Centered Services. These services are provided to families and children when a “child abuse or neglect investigation or family assessment response finds that there is a preponderance of evidence or unsubstantiated-preventive services indicated or services needed.” (Missouri Department of Social Services 2008) There is a range of treatment including day care, family counseling, evaluation or diagnosis, homemaker services and respite care. Families can access these programs through referral following evaluation or through voluntary requisition. (Missouri Department of Social Services. 2008)

Missouri also offers intensive in-home services where crisis intervention is done within the home, as an alternative to “staying, safely together”, rather than fostering out children. (Missouri Department of Social Services. 2008) In home services include counseling, parenting education, child development training, household maintenance education, nutritional training, job readiness training and other community services.

One of the reasons the Missouri community is helping people in need of human services is that many of their programs are accessible, through referral, as well as through outreach from different agencies. The Missouri Department of Soc View More »

    English R1B All humans, no matter what race, gender, or color have basic desires in life. These desires include the desire to live, the desire to be healthy, and so on. Yet there is one universal desire that is developed and very dependent on other humans, and that is the desire for friendship.

The example Smart refers to is McCloskey’s situation of whether or not a sheriff should kill an innocent man to save hundreds of pe

    A flag football game was held out at the Northern Illinois University Outdoor Recreation Sports Complex on September 20, 2017. It was nothing large scale considering there was hardly an audience and it was a quiet night, no music playing, but there were four teams participating. There were official referees, but no coaches, just four teams of guys all wearing different colors, depending on their team. There were not even any scoreboards, just the referees to keep track. The group playing on the field closest to the benches were wearing gray or black. The gray team, for the most part, seemed li

    Bullying

    Historically, in cases of peer-to-peer abuse, whether physical or emotional, the blame is laid on the belligerent boys or girls. The bystanders who hover, chime in, or squirm on the outskirts of the 'mean' action are dismissed as irrelevant. Also dismissed are those who spread the tale of the victim's woe through the grapevine. In truth, however, this supporting cast plays a significant role in peer-to-peer violence....Bystanders make or break bullying episodes." (Our Children) This article examines the role of the bystander in bullying incidents and outlines some strategies to help enc

    An Anti-war Story Passionate In Its Aversion Of Passion

    In Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Slaughterhouse-Five , the englishmen stand out as “clean and enthusiastic and decent and strong” (Vonnegut 119). They exhibit every romantic quality possibly derived from the brave men sent off to defend their country from villainy, and are even the subject of adoration for the nazis who run their prison. It would be easy to mistakenly say that these men give war a glorious image. However, they actually mock it. They stand out from every other character not only for being the epitome of strength and honor, but also for being “among the first English-speaki
