About the Webinar
This one-hour workshop will examine current trends in youth suicide, and present an MTSS framework for helping school districts to keep kids safe. Tier I interventions focus on universal interventions including school climate and connectedness, mental health curriculum in schools, school climate, and gatekeeper awareness training. Tier II interventions focus on individuals and groups who may be at greater risk, while Tier III interventions focus on specific tools to assess and intervene with students exhibiting suicide warning signs.
It will also provide tons of useful programs, techniques and tools for helping to improve your district’s suicide policies/practices.
