Online Training For Educators
ACT on FACTS is an updated version of the Best Practices, free, online training for educators Making Educators Partners in Youth Suicide Prevention offered by the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide. It provides two hours of professional development credit to educators at the discretion of your local school district, but is open to anyone who is interested in reviewing current strategies for youth suicide prevention in schools.
For clinicians working with youth, understanding how youth suicide prevention is approached in schools is important. Understanding the process that occured for a particular student to be referred to you for care can greatly help your support of that client.
