After a suicide, schools need reliable information, tools, and guidance to protect students, communicate with the public, and to return to educating.
The Model School District Policy on Suicide Prevention has recently been published by the NASP, ASCA, AFSP, and The Trevor Project.
Recently, an 18-year-old student made national headlines by stabbing a fellow student to death and seriously injuring another. He said he did it because they bullied him.
Most of the time, it’s in the unscripted moments where we find connection and relationships forming in our lives.
People often become bystanders when there are others who need help. Choosing to help can make a big difference simply by alleviating someone’s worries and assuring that everything’s going to be okay.
Connections are how relationships are formed. Just as little as a few minutes to connect with another person can create meaningful and genuine relationships.
