Did you know that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in youth 10-24 years of age? Research has shown that in 2017 alone, 17.4% of 9-12th graders in NYS reported that they seriously considered suicide. 10.1% of those attempted to take their own life. Those statics cannot be ignored. We have Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide certified trainers available to present Suicide Safety for Teachers. The presentation, of approximately 60 - 90 minutes, examines: • characteristics of at-risk students • the educator's critical, but limited role • your building's referral process • community resources Please contact valerie@teachers-center.org if your district is interested in this training for ALL school staff. Trainings are offered at cost, $250 or $300 respectively, and may also require a mileage cost depending on the location. The NYS Suicide Prevention Conference is coming up September 18th and 19th. Check out the program HERE! This month's NOTA (Next on the Agenda) promotion from the School Board's Association features The Guide to Suicide Prevention in New York Schools. Check out the video HERE and the resource list below the video. One conversation can change a life.
