Second ACT Program (RENEWAL ONLY)

Implementer 1

SOS Second ACT reinforces the signs of depression and suicide, and graduates the ACT technique (Acknowledge, Care, Tell → Acknowledge, Care, Treatment) for upperclassmen preparing to take charge of their behavioral health as they transition to college or work. The program is designed as a booster to SOS for high school and includes a short video for older students, the depression screening tool and student response slips.

    SOS Second ACT is an all digital program. Receive access to all materials within a few days of purchase. License must be renewed annually.

    Note: Second ACT is consistent with the messaging of other SOS programs, but has not been clinically evaluated.

    Product Details

    SOS Second ACT provides booster suicide prevention training to upperclassmen in just one class period. First, students view a short video that features real life stories from suicide attempt survivors and teens who have struggled with their behavioral health. After a guided classroom discussion, students take a brief, validated screen for signs of depression and suicide and are given the opportunity to reach out via our student response slips.
