Suicide Prevention & Intervention

 

Suicide is a serious public health problem that takes an

enormous toll on families, students, employees and

communities. Suicide prevention involves the collective efforts

of families/caregivers, the school community, mental health

practitioners, local community organizations, and related

professionals to reduce the incidence of suicide through

education, awareness, and services. School personnel are

instrumental in helping students and their families by

identifying students at-risk and linking them to school and

community mental health resources.
