Empowering Youth through Mental Wellness, Relationships &
Suicide Prevention Education

First, teachers will learn user-friendly and concrete ways to identify mental health concerns and suicide risk factors. Second, we will guide teachers through a clear map of how to help students thinking of suicide or self-harm. Lastly, teachers will learn effective coping skills for mental health concerns and ways to better connect with struggling students.
