A suicide death can have a devastating impact on a school community. Since knowing someone who has died
by suicide is one of the highest risk factors for suicide, taking steps to reduce risk and promote healing after a suicide (postvention) becomes an integral part of suicide prevention efforts.
Connect Suicide Postvention Training is a proactive planning tool to respond to a suicide or sudden death of a student, teacher or member of the community. Using National Best Practice protocols, participants will learn how to reduce the risk of contagion and create a comprehensive response plan in the event of a suicide. The training includes interactive case scenarios, discussion, exercises, PowerPoint and printed materials.
