Red Flags Implementer Training


Training Description

It is not surprising that when schools are looking at mental health programming, they gravitate to suicide prevention. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 11-24. There is no doubt that for those who are regularly around young people, a suicide prevention skill set is as critical as CPR or First Aid.

Recommended For:

Counselors, Psychologists, Nurses, Health Teachers, Social Workers, School Administrators, Parent Mentors, etc.

Is Red Flags Evidence Based?

We are sometimes asked by schools if Red Flags is evidence based. The short answer is yes. A double-blind study commissioned by the Ohio Department of Mental Health in 2007 using both qualitative and quantitative data determined that Red Flags is effective in reducing stigma and increasing the number of students who ask for help with a mental health concern. Additionally, Red Flags is certainly evidence informed. That means its materials and process comply with numerous studies and recommendations for mental health programming in schools.
