What’s Stopping You? Addressing Common Barriers to SOS in Schools
Are you not quite convinced of the importance of doing suicide prevention in your school? Or are you on board, but not sure how to convince others? Join us for a one-hour webinar addressing the importance of suicide prevention programming, the most common barriers to suicide prevention in schools, and how to overcome these barriers to bring SOS to your students.
The Importance of Screening
Student mental health screening is a critically important element of a school-based suicide prevention. Screening educates students about mental health symptoms they may be experiencing and encourages help-seeking for themselves or a friend. But taking the first step toward screening students requires an informed, thoughtful approach. Join us for a one-hour webinar as we explore the power of screening as part SOS Signs of Suicide. We will discuss data collected from key partners conducting either anonymous or identified screening with large populations of students, best practices in scoring screening forms and following up with youth, and how to address the common concerns we hear about screening students.
Learn About the National Crisis Text Line with SOS Signs of Suicide
In tandem with our new program videos, SOS has partnered up with the National Crisis Text Line to create a new keyword, so students can text ‘ACT’ to 741741 to be connected with a trained crisis counselor. Join us for a one-hour webinar where we’ll talk more about the Crisis Text Line and hear from a special guest: a trained crisis counselor who’s been working with the Text Line!
