Suicide

Response, Awareness and Prevention (RAP)

Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death in youth ages 12-18.

Schools are the most accessible point of contact for children and adolescents at risk for suicide.


Suicide has a profound effect on the school community.


Please join us as we discuss and identify strategies for providing additional support to the schools in Genesee County.


Participants will

• Learn the signs and symptoms of suicide

• Identify suicide prevention strategies

• Determine additional resources necessary for suicide prevention and response

• Develop an "Immediate Suicide Response Protocol" for their school district

Who should attend?

This training will provide an opportunity for district staff to begin to develop a draft of the Suicide response plan. It is recommended that the district send at least two from the district - one of which may be a district leader responsible for crisis planning and a second staff member who is either a counselor or social worker at the secondary level.
