CARROLLTON, Mo.- The Lafayette County Children’s Services Fund is hosting a seminar geared towards today’s youth on the topics of bullying, cyber bullying and suicide prevention.

The Lafayette County Children’s Services Fund Board of Directors is a group of nine individuals, from Lafayette County, that are passionate about the well-being and safety of the counties children. They govern a special tax fund as a provision of a 1/8 cent sales tax, specifically to be used for services to Lafayette County Children and families. The board continues to provide quality, comprehensive training and services to protect the well-being and safety of children and youth 19 years of age or less to strengthen families.

Tina Meier founded the Megan Meier Foundation back in 2007, after her daughter, Megan, tragically committed suicide from cyber bullying attacks. Megan’s story will be shared along with the topics of bullying, bystanders, cyber bullying, sexting, teen suicide, and resiliency. The goal of the seminar is to continue to educate today’s youth and parents on becoming better equipped to help our children. A Question & Answer session will also be available during the seminar.
