In the three years, there has been a dramatic rise in suicidal ideation and attempts among adolescents and young adults. In this workshop participants will learn how to recognize the risk factors and warning signs of suicide as well as how to help build protective factors and how to help those at risk recognize protective factors in their own lives. Participants will learn how to talk with youth at risk, and gain an understanding of suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention.  There will be discussion of practical strategies to use with at-risk youth as well as ideas to use for strategic planning around suicide prevention in the community and school setting. This program aligns with the VDOE Suicide Prevention Guidelines.
