Suicide Prevention Materials

At North Lake School, we approach suicide prevention awareness and activities from numerous angles:
 

  • Annual staff development covering suicide warning signs, relationship building strategies, mental health information and suicide prevention resources
  • Curriculum in all grades focusing on support networks and healthy strategies for recognizing and dealing with emotions
  • Curriculum in 7th and 8th grade focusing on mental health awareness, Say Something curriculum and suicide prevention strategies
  • Staff procedures to follow in the case of a student expressing suicidal thoughts
  • Collaboration with GALS Institute for staff development and on site mental health services
