July 25 Webinar: Suicide Prevention in Schools Part 3

This webinar will introduce participants to the evidence-based Signs of Suicide (SOS) program for middle and high schools. SOS educates teens on warning signs of depression and suicide and teaches them how to support themselves or a friend using ACT: Acknowledge, Care and Tell. SOS includes a vital screening component in order to help school student services staff identify at-risk youth and link them to needed services. Participants will also learn about a local organization, Elyssa’s Mission, and their approach to funding and implementing the SOS program in more than200 Illinois schools.
