Teacher Development

Parent University / Community Presentation

The LRJ Foundation works with administrators in advance to review their current suicide prevention policies and wellness initiatives and incorporate specific information into each district’s presentations. The program is age-appropriate and fully customizable based on the school’s unique needs and student body population.

LRJ Foundation works with leadership within each organization to tailor presentations to specific needs.

We conduct our training through lectures, open discussion and participation, group activities, and case studies.  Although the focus is on how to help and support students, we also focus on how to take care of yourself both in and out of the classroom in order to maintain overall mental health and wellness.

In addition, with the assistance of administrators, LRJ Foundation can work to develop a policy that addresses the needs of the most at-risk students, how to identify them, and how to offer them the support they need.

*Suicide prevention training credits via Pennsylvania state Law ACT 71, requiring all teachers to have 4 hours of suicide prevention training every 5 years. LRJ’s program model fulfills the guidelines requested by the Department of Education. Local Education Agencies, LEA’s, (School districts, charter schools, and intermediate units) can choose an outside organization to supply the LEA with continuing education credits via on-site teacher in-services.* Please check with your residing state for their suicide prevention legislation requirements for the LRJ program to best assist CEC requirements.
