Are you in Proactive-mode, or Reaction-mode? Are you engaged in Prevention, or waiting for crisis, and then intervening? Are you actively connecting to students, or waiting for them to reach out to you? It's time to set aside ineffective strategies, and implement the best prevention, intervention, and postvention tool available!
What's the benefit to you? Less behavioral issues. Students are more engaged in curriculum. Early detection and prevention reduces crisis. Students feel supported and connected, thus raising the overall climate at your school.
Suicide is the leading cause of death for teens in Utah! Over 44% of youth reported they persistently felt sad or hopeless during the past year! The CDC states "a sense of being cared for, supported, and belonging at school—called 'school connectedness'—had an important effect on students during a time of severe disruption." What are you doing to help your students feel cared for, supported, and like they belong? What solutions are available? Join me and take home a tool that you can implement right away, at no extra burden to your staff. See you here.
