Signs Matter: Early Detection

Educators can play a critical role in the fight against suicide. They don’t have to be mental health experts, but it is important that they understand and recognize the signs that a student is at risk for suicide.

Online suicide prevention training for K-12 educators

Signs Matter was developed based on a combination of science and best practice. The program presents scientifically based information on a variety of topics related to youth suicide, alongside best practice recommendations drawn from experts in the mental health and education fields. Science sheds light on key questions of risk and protective factors for youth suicide, as well as the most common behavioral presentations expressed by at risk youth. Recommendations for school personnel roles, support, referrals, and interventions are drawn from best practices of educational and mental health experts.

Signs Matter: Early Detection fulfills many states’ requirements for educators to have two hours of instruction on suicide prevention and bullying.
