Developing an Effective Suicide Prevention Policy

This workshop is designed to assist local educational agencies in developing policies for pupil suicide prevention. Specifically, trainees will learn about Assembly Bills 2246, 1767, 1808, and Senate Bill 972 requirements. Based on the latest research, participants will be able to create a handbook or toolkit that complies with the above policies and will improve their knowledge and skills in suicide prevention. Workshop Objectives: • Participants will be able to describe the suicide problem and its context. • Participants will understand prevention strategies that comply with AB 2246/1767/1808 and SB972. • Participants will be able to select or develop interventions that will decrease risk and/or increase protective factors. • Participants will understand postvention activities such as re-entry meetings, safety plans, reducing contagion, and referral services. • Participants will be able to take further action, by working with others to develop your handbook/toolkit.
