Suicide Prevention, Intervention, and Postvention During COVID-19:
What School-Based Staff Need to Know

Tuesday, May 12th, 2:00-3:30pm (EST)

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.

This webinar will address three key 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 the skills to identify and respond to youth who may be at risk; and provide a thoughtful approach for supporting the school and family should a suicide occur.
