Description: This webinar will address three evidence-based topics and the resources to support school staff as they manage current or emerging suicidal thoughts and behaviors in their students during the COVID-19 crisis. Presenters will share the rationale and tools to develop an individual and meaningful safety plan via telehealth; equip teachers and school staff with skills to identify and respond to youth who may be at risk; and provide an approach for supporting the school and family should a suicide occur. This webinar is co-hosted with the Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC), the nation’s federally funded resource center devoted to implementation of the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention. SPRC is a project of the Education Development Center.
