NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION AWARENESS WEEK
National Suicide Prevention Awareness Week
National Suicide Prevention Awareness Week was September 5-11. On opening day on the high school level, all students were given information on school support staff and how to access their counselor, nurse, administrators, etc. Counselors and administrators regularly train staff at all grades (K-12), of warning signs and suicide prevention. Staff members are also trained in bullying prevention, and ways in which bullying can be a factor in teen suicide. If you feel that your child needs to be seen for a mental health emergency, please make sure to get in immediate contact with your child’s doctor and/or the school counselor. For additional resources, please go to the district website and visit our websites related to mental health and wellness and social emotional learning. Below is a link to a padlet with resources compiled with our partner American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) in NJ.
