In the CCISD district, the 3rd Suicide Prevention Symposium was held at Del Mar College on September 9, 2019. Many CCISD students, faculty members and staff, as well as the district attorney and other significant members of the Coastal Bend, attended this meeting. Citizens and representatives from the Coastal Bend were integral in the State passing a law making September suicide prevention month for the entire state of Texas. 

At the Suicide Prevention Symposium, students brainstormed ideas to spread the word and inspire people to prevent suicides from occurring so often as it has been in recent years. The Ray Student Council attended and participated in making friendship bracelets from the three suicide prevention colors: purple, blue, and yellow. Overall, the students experienced a great moment of realization that they have the power to make change within their schools and even in communities.
