Suicide Awareness and Prevention for Educators

Suicide Awareness and Prevention for Educators

This comprehensive course helps educators to understand the complexities of suicide. With special attention paid to data, risk factors, protective factors, trauma, depression, and proper support, educators are armed with resources and knowledge. The goal of this course is to empower adults to find the right words, actions, and processes in the face of prevention, intervention, and postvention. When supportive adults feel confident, the impact on those around them can be profound. Continuing education credits may be awarded by your district.

Best practice implementation recommendation: This course works well for individual educator learning followed by 30-60 min discussion to integrate knowledge and reflect on questions in your setting.
