Suicide and Prevention Toolkit
Resources for School/District PLCs:
Preventing Suicide: A Toolkit for High Schools was funded by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to help high schools, school districts, and their partners design and implement strategies to prevent suicide and promote behavioral health among their students.
After a Suicide: A Toolkit for Schools was collaboratively developed to assist schools in the aftermath of a suicide (or other death) in the school community. Because neither American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) nor Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC) have the capacity to provide customized technical assistance in these circumstances, this toolkit was created to help schools determine what to do, when, and how. It is a highly practical resource for schools facing real-time crises. While designed specifically to address the aftermath of suicide, schools will find it useful following other deaths as well.
