Did you know April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month? Learn how you can help children and families with the added stress brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Suicide Prevention Resource Center published a report about the relationship between child abuse and suicide. Please help spread the word!
A Culture of Caring: A Suicide Prevention Guide for Schools (K-12) was created as a resource for educators who want to know how to get started and what steps to take to create a suicide prevention plan that will work for their schools and districts. It is written from my perspective as a school principal and survivor of suicide loss, not an expert in psychology or counseling. I hope that any teacher, school counselor, psychologist, principal, or district administrator can pick up this book, flip to a chapter, and easily find helpful answers to the questions they are likely to have about what schools can do to prevent suicide.
