Suicide and Self-Harm Prevention in Schools
Monday, May 7, 2018 | 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. Eastern Time

SAMHSA invites you to join a Technical Assistance Coalition webinar with Mental Health America about the importance of school-based suicide and self-harm prevention. The rise of self-harm and suicide among youth presents a growing need for the use of evidence-based practices to improve intervention, support, and treatment among youth. School-based and community settings offer many opportunities to employ such practices to foster positive behavioral change. The presenters will discuss the challenges in implementing prevention efforts in school-based settings and best practices for supporting suicide prevention.
