SCHOOLS ARE UNIQUELY POSITIONED TO SUPPORT YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH
1 in 3 high school students report feeling sad or hopeless.
For LGBTQ+ students, this rate doubles.
Safe school environments and strong student-adult relationships can reduce suicide risk, but many schools are challenged by limited resources and confidence to provide appropriate support
TOGETHER, WE CAN HELP STUDENTS AND CREATE REAL CHANGE.
PCMH is partnering with the school community to create customized, sustainable, and feasible suicide intervention protocols, structures, and strategies that are embedded in existing school practices. We’re focused on:
Prevention and identification
Intervention and postvention
Training and education
INCORPORATING YOUTH VOICE
This video will be shared as part of our trainings with school professionals to encourage them to approach students and start a conversation about how they’re doing.
