SEPTEMBER is...

National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month!

National Suicide Prevention Week :  September 9th – 15th

World Suicide Prevention Day : Monday, September 10th

Schools and SAP Teams may consider recognizing this month, week, or day through awareness events and activities, trainings and educational programs, and resource dissemination.  Here are some ideas:

·          Have students develop a video, audio clip, or poster for Prevent Suicide PA’s 7th Annual PSA Contest for Suicide Prevention

·          Use past PSA contest submissions to engage students in discussions about suicide prevention and helpful resources

·          Have staff participate in an online class through Prevent Suicide PA’s Suicide Prevention Online Learning Center

·          Select a suicide prevention educational program for students from Prevent Suicide PA and the Garrett Lee Smith Youth Suicide Prevention Grant’s new resource guide for schools.  Visit Prevent Suicide PA’s Act 71 page for additional training and school policy resources.
