Social Emotional Learning and Suicide Prevention at CHS
Advisory Update - Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and Suicide Prevention
SEL has been one of the focuses in advisory this year. We have talked about concepts like self-awareness and self-management. We have discussed positive coping strategies and have developed tools like self-care plans. Advisory has been an important place to develop relationships with you and your student(s). One benefit of SEL instruction is that it gives staff and students a common language to discuss successes and challenges.
We also think it is important that students know what to do when they are struggling personally. This week’s lessons are on mental health and suicide prevention. On Monday, we shared information about the mental health therapists that work with students in our district and how to get connected with services as well as how to connect with their CHS Counselor. On Thursday, we will be discussing suicide prevention. We will talk about warning signs, risk factors, and protective factors related to suicide. We will also provide crisis resources to students.
We encourage you to familiarize yourself with suicide prevention and to check in with your student throughout this difficult and challenging time. Support is available and we encourage you to reach out for support as needed, together we can support all CHS students.
Below are the crisis resources that we are sharing.
