Signs of Suicide (High School)

Signs of Suicide High School Program: Friends for Life
Grades: 9-12 (typically a 9th grade health class)
  • The Signs of Suicide High School Program is an evidence-based program that has been nationally recognized for it’s effectiveness in reducing suicide attempts in teens. It builds off of the helping skills from Signs of Suicide Middle School Program: Time to ACT and teaches students the specific signs of suicide and how to help those who are considering suicide using ACT (Acknowledge, Care, Tell).¬† Students are screened for depression using the Brief Screen for Adolescent Depression (BSAD) and connected with counselors for follow-up. Each student also has the option to self-refer to a counselor in order to discuss any concerns they may have for themselves or a friend.
  • For information on these programs or to schedule please contact the Suicide Prevention Program Coordinator at Helpline –¬†Michelle Price
