Responding After a Suicide: Best Practices for Schools

Date/Time (ET): 
May 26, 2011 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Led By: 
Suicide Prevention Resource Center

Schools that experience a suicide in their communities are often uncertain about how to respond and can benefit from others with expertise in this area. State and local organizations contacted by schools in crisis can assist by providing information about best practices and practical resources. This webinar presents safe and effective ways in which schools, and the organizations working with them, can respond following a suicide. Three speakers representing national and school-based perspectives will discuss relevant research, best practices and key resources, including a new online toolkit for schools. They will be joined by discussants describing their coordinated response to one school's suicide crisis. The webinar format will be interactive, with opportunities for participants to ask questions.


Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe best practices and key resources for responding to a suicide in the school community.
  2. Understand how state and local organizations can help schools in crisis following a suicide.
  3. Access After a Suicide: A Toolkit for Schools and other related resources.
