Teenage years are never easy, but in recent years an increasing number of troubled teens consider suicide as an option. Port Townsend has not escaped this. Four years ago 15-year-old Benji Kenworthy took his own life, which first shattered this community but then led to an option that can help save teenager’s lives. The Benji Project provides teenagers with stress management and emotional resilience skills to keep them from a drastic action that will affect everyone around them. On today’s Compass we talk with Cynthia Osterman, Benji’s mother, who has built the project into a valuable local resource.
