The likelihood of schools or youth-serving agencies encountering a suicidal youth is real. Few events are more painful or potentially disruptive to the community than suicide. Protocols provide guidance on steps to take to safely assist youth and staff by providing them with direction, structure and support. This protocol workshop will provide schools a hands-on opportunity to learn important information to develop/strengthen suicide prevention, intervention and postvention protocols.

To help us meet grant requirements, your participation in this workshop will require you to complete a short pre-survey upon registration and provide any suicide protocols/policies your school has to the University of New England, the program evaluators.
