Suicide is currently the 2nd leading cause of death among youths and young adults 10-24 years of age. Bringing attention to this ever-important issue, in 2016 Assembly Bill 2246 was signed into law in California requiring districts to adopt a Suicide Prevention Policy. Being prepared with a well-defined plan for suicide prevention, intervention and postvention is critical. Learn about one district's multi-tiered system of support and walk away with practical strategies to address this issue. After attending this session, participants will be able to:
1) Understand suicide prevention awareness strategies.
2) Understand how to screen for students who may be at-risk.
3) Identify how to assess and intervene with those at-risk.
4) Explain postvention supports after a suicide.
