For Effective Communications Month, teen hosts Robert, Ayana, Dylan, and Kaitlyn talk about our pal AL, or active listening. They also discuss when it's important to listen and avoid giving advice, and when we need to speak up to effectively communicate. Our guest is Laurie Best, Coordinator of Community and Volunteer Relations at Contact Community Services.

If you need someone to listen to you, you can reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or chat online at their website between the hours of 2 PM and 2 AM Eastern.
