Developing School Protocols: Intervening with Students Experiencing Thoughts of Suicide
Course date: October 13th and 20th from 10:00AM – 12:00PM (MST)
Audience: School Professionals
Location: Via Zoom
This course is a two-part series that will review best practice guidelines and offer practical suggestions for school districts looking to develop or improve policies and procedures to support students experiencing thoughts of suicide. Recommendations for suicide screening, assessment, safety planning, re-entry post hospitalization, and ongoing monitoring will be reviewed. This course is appropriate for school administrative staff or mental health professionals who are involved in developing and implementing suicide prevention policies within their school community. We recommend that schools have both a mental health staff and administrator attend so they are best able to implement material reviewed in this course. Schools who are in the earlier stages of developing policies and protocols may benefit more from this course, as it is introductory in nature. This course will be held over two sessions and facilitated via Zoom.
- Session #1: October 13th from 10:00AM – 12:00PM (MST)
- Session #2: October 20th from 10:00AM – 12:00PM (MST)
