Suicide Prevention in Schools: Critical Interventions and Strategies – Single User



Grades 5-12
Suicide has become the second leading cause of death for teens. Almost 40% of students who attempt suicide make their first attempt in middle or elementary school. According to research, about 1 in 12 students have attempted suicide before their high school graduation. Youth can experience intense feelings of stress from academic, social, familial and environmental pressures. For some teens, suicide may appear to be a solution to their problems and stress.
Suicide is a preventable crisis. We MUST do more to save our children!
During this research-based 90-minute webinar, Kaye Randall, MSW, LISW-CP (co-author of 102 Creative Strategies and Activities in Working with Depressed Children and Adolescents and See My Pain! Creative Strategies & Activities for Helping Young People Who Self-Injure) will provide fresh understandings and innovative approaches that can be used to connect with and help students who are most at risk for suicide.
