Suicide Prevention in Schools is Essential: Understand the Liability and Mental Health Issues, features Dr. Scott Poland, a national expert on suicide prevention education in schools. The increase in youth suicide means that schools cannot ignore the issue and instead need to face it head on. However, schools have many concerns about suicide prevention education that Dr. Poland can answer, such as:
How do we deliver the most effective suicide prevention programming while considering liability?
What do our students and community believe about youth suicide that we need to address first?
Unfortunately there has been a suicide in my community, now what can I do to prevent further suicides from happening?
Dr. Poland will address these important issues and many more on the one-hour webinar. Dr. Poland has a comprehensive understanding of the issues schools face when trying to prevent suicide and recently co-authored the book Suicide in Schools: A Practitioner’s Guide to Multi-level Prevention, Assessment, Intervention, and Postvention. His years in the field and recent publishing have shown him that schools can address this complex issue with proper training and best practices. Join this free webinar to learn more.
