Participants will review myths and truths about self-harm and suicide, including the signs, forms, and reasons students exhibit these behaviors. School Counselors will learn how to assess risk, severity, and presentations of self harm and suicidality, as well as intervention tips and resources to assist students, who are suicidal or self-injurying. Resources for model policies and prevention will be provided to better assist school staff in managing, preventing, and intervening with suicide and self-injury. Teachers and administrators should enroll in the course specific to their roles occuring at the same time for more appropriate training. School nurses may choose either.
