About the training:
The SOS Train-the-trainer virtual workshop helps prepare new SOS facilitators to conduct classroom discussions about depression and suicide, identify students in need of support, and engage trusted adults in youth suicide prevention.
This course is comprised of a brief pre-work session and a live session from with a brief knowledge check. The interactive training uses breakout rooms and polls to discuss common barriers and brainstorm strategies for successful delivery of SOS’s evidence-based suicide prevention program in the classroom and/or virtually. A thorough review of SOS materials and planning processes ensures new SOS facilitators are ready to train students and adults.
