Suicide Awareness and Prevention
Social Workers of Missouri Conference
We will discuss trends in youth mental health, well-being, and suicide prevention and awareness to encourage students to seek help for themselves and other students. The training will include warning signs and the impact of mental health issues and substance use that may indicate a youth is at risk of suicide. We’ll also cover protective and risk factors and how to conduct a risk assessment as well as limitations and boundaries for giving help and techniques to practice self-care.
The suicide prevention and awareness training meets Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education guidelines for training and professional development.
