Participants will learn how to conduct suicide risk assessments with greater skill, confidence, and effectiveness. A school-wide approach to suicide prevention will be discussed and advocated, including universal programs for all students, targeted programs for at-risk students, and tertiary programs for potentially suicidal youth. Recommended procedures for effectively responding after a suicide occurs (postvention) will also be provided. This workshop will address all grade levels, but a particular emphasis will be placed on suicide-prevention procedures in middle and high schools.
