Signs of Suicide
Parent Information Guide
Dear KNMS Families,
Through the program, students learn:
that depression is treatable, so they are encouraged to seek help
how to identify depression and potential suicide risk in themselves or a friend
to ACT (Acknowledge, Care and Tell a trusted adult) if concerned about themselves or a friend
who they can turn to at school for help, if they need it
Students will watch age-appropriate video clips about depression, suicide, and what to do if they are concerned about a friend. Following the video, students will complete a brief Adolescent Depression Screening along with an exit slip which asks whether they would like to talk to an adult about any concerns. Counselors will then conduct brief meetings with any students asking to talk.
