Save the Teens

Preventing suicide, depression and addiction
In conjunction with The Shore Grief Center

Welcome teens and adults!


Are you concerned about teen depression and substance abuse which can lead to suicide? Then Save the Teens is the right place to visit.
 
Save the Teens provides information to help you do just that - save the teens. It was started as many nonprofits do, as the result of devastation to one or many. The devastation in this case is suicide.

The goal is to prevent additional suicides among our teens (and others) by teaching the signs of depression and substance abuse.

Join us in this effort to keep our beautiful teens alive! Visit the Donations page or Facebook page or blog site and help Save the Teens to go viral.

The Shore Grief Center provides FREE peer-based grief support groups for teens in Wake Forest, N.C. and surrounding areas. Groups are also held in schools. Contact us to learn how to bring these important groups into your school. Dealing with a death alone is a scary thing. Having the support of your friends at school can help!

NEW Save the Teen Grief Support Group starting October 2! Free sessions which include art therapy, journaling, and learning how to understand your feelings dealing with a death. Email carolyn@theshoregriefcenter.org to sign up!

We also hold public groups for teens in a church in Wake Forest. Contact Carolyn Zahnow if you'd like to attend a group. New groups are formed in the fall and spring. They run for 8 consecutive weeks and include art therapy.

We hope you'll support The Shore so it can grow and help even more individuals through the murky water of grief. People do better with their grief if they can share with someone who is going through the same emotions they are. 


Need a speaker? Bring Save the Teens to your group! Accepting reservations for future speaking dates. Contact us for additional information.

The Founder of Save the Teens - Carolyn C. Zahnow

Carolyn Zahnow lost her son and only child, Cameron Stephenson, in 2005 to the demons that occupied his mind. Her hope is that by sharing her story and experiences other parents, teachers, mentors of teens, and teens themselves, will become more aware to the signs and symptoms of teen depression and substance abuse and then know what to do about it.

Do not become one of the parents who attend survivor of suicide support groups who whispers ..... "If only I'd seen the signs."

Learn the signs and save your teen! 

The Hope to save the teens

Yes, there's hope and as long as we all believe in that, then we WILL save teens!

Every life is worth living.


Cameron Stephenson, the inspiration behind Save the Teens
May 29, 1987 - August 11, 2005
