House Bill 1583 mandates that teachers complete up to two hours of training in youth suicide awareness and prevention starting in the 2017–2018 school year and annually thereafter. School districts will also be required to develop comprehensive suicide and bully prevention policies by 2018-2019.

Teacher training is one small component of a comprehensive suicide and bully prevention program, therefore it is imperative for districts to prepare for the mandates of HB 1583 by initially developing policies that include prevention, intervention and postvention strategies.

This workshop will focus on the latest evidence-based strategies for school suicide prevention that include teacher and parent gatekeeper training; the relationship between suicide, bullying and non-suicidal self injury and its impact on policy; depression screening; and safe messaging about suicide for district public information officers.

Suicide intervention policies and procedures include the duties and responsibilities of school safety/crisis teams; suicide risk assessment, notifying parents, utilizing safety planning; re-entry conferences when students return from hospitalization; and collaborating with law enforcement and local community mental health agencies.

Suicide postvention guidelines include best practice strategies for responding in the aftermath of a student or staff death by suicide; limiting contagion; identifying and referring at-risk youth, communicating the multifaceted role of staff; responding to parent impact; working with media and social media; and providing appropriate ways to memorialize students who die by suicide.
