Pupil Services staff, Health educators,Administrators, and others concerned about youth suicide
Among Wisconsin youth, suicide is the second leading cause of death and accounts for almost 1 in 5 of all deaths. State law requires school districts to provide specific classroom instruction in youth suicide prevention and to annually notify staff about the Department of Public Instruction’s resources.
The workshop helps participants understand the scope of youth suicide and what schools can do to reduce suicidal acts and thoughts among students. Participants learn about the prevalence of youth suicide, risk and protective factors, comprehensive prevention programs, and crisis intervention.
This workshop is not intended to train all school staff, but prepares teams of pupil services staff, health educators, and administrators to plan, prevent, and intervene at their schools. Action planning is integrated into all phases of the training program. A model workshop for all school staff is provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring their suicide crisis response plans for discussion and revision.
- Understand the prevalence of youth suicide
- Discuss legal requirements
- Gain knowledge and skills to improve classroom instruction at the middle and high school level
- Create a local action plan based on a 3-tiered prevention and intervention model to reduce suicide among youth
