ALLEN COUNT, Ind. (WOWO): Multiple organizations are banding together to bring a suicide prevention assembly to area schools.

Area schools are teaming up with RemedyLIVE, the creator of Get Schooled Tour. RemedyLIVE is a web-based chat center. It’s staffed with more than 100 people who chat with youth who are struggling.

The chat is available 24/7 and can be activated by texting 494949. A grant from the Lutheran Foundation is funding the Get Schooled Tour.
