Training Opportunities: Suicide Prevention for Schools

This resource highlights the key elements of youth suicide prevention in schools from a public health perspective, as well as identifies free and low-cost trainings that are available to school leadership and staff in Vermont. 

This is one part of the state's comprehensive youth suicide prevention approach, which also includes providing community support and educational groups for youth at higher risk for suicide, training adults who work or care for youth to identify warning signs and connect youth to the appropriate care, supporting healthcare systems that treat youth having thoughts of suicide, and providing grief support groups for youth who have lost someone to suicide. This project is made possible through funding by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration's Garrett Lee Smith Grant.
