Suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth between the ages of 10 and 24, and rates have been increasing in every state over the past decade. There is growing focus in the field of youth suicide prevention in taking a more proactive and comprehensive “upstream” approach, which involves working to reduce risk factors and enhance protective factors prior to the onset of high risk behaviors, suicidal thoughts and other concerns. Educators are uniquely positioned to take the lead in implementing upstream strategies, building resilience and saving lives. This online inservice explores a comprehensive school-based suicide prevention framework for schools, highlighting the role of educators and best practice approaches.
