Collaborating proactively with administrators, the LRJ Foundation conducts thorough reviews of existing suicide prevention policies and wellness initiatives. This tailored approach ensures that each district’s presentations are customized with relevant information. Our program is meticulously designed to be age-appropriate and fully adaptable, aligning seamlessly with the distinctive needs and demographics of each school’s student body.

LRJ Foundation collaborates closely with organizational leadership to customize presentations according to specific requirements. Our training approach encompasses lectures, interactive discussions, group activities, and case studies. While the focus is on aiding and supporting students, we also emphasize self-care for educators to ensure overall mental health and wellness, both within and outside the classroom.

Furthermore, with the guidance of administrators, LRJ Foundation can assist in formulating policies targeting the needs of the most vulnerable students, including identification methods and necessary support.

Our program adheres to Pennsylvania state Law ACT 71, which mandates 4 hours of suicide prevention training every 5 years for educators. LRJ’s program model aligns with Department of Education guidelines. Local Education Agencies (LEAs) such as school districts, charter schools, and intermediate units can select external organizations like LRJ to provide on-site teacher in-services for continuing education credits. Please refer to your state’s suicide prevention legislation for LRJ’s program compatibility with CEC requirements.
