2 Day Umatter for Schools Youth Suicide Prevention Training for School Professionals @ Fireside Inn
Nov 15 – Nov 16 all-day


This two-day training is designed so that you can prepare your school community to respond to the mental health needs of students and prevent suicide. Once adults know suicidal warning signs and how to help, they will be ready to teach suicide prevention lessons using the Lifelines curriculum, an evidence based program of four lessons appropriate for Middle and High School students. In order to ensure success, plan to bring a team from your school with members who can fill the roles of Administrative Sponsor, School Liaison, Health Educator, and Community Liaison.


Day one of this training will focus on the risk factors, warning signs, and incidence of youth suicide as well as how to identify and refer students who may be suicidal. Day two will consist of an administrative track focused on the development of school protocols.
