Culture of Caring

Let’s Talk About This

World Suicide Prevention Day is September 10.

National Suicide Prevention Week is

Sunday, September 5 - Saturday, September 11.

Suicide Prevention Month is all month.

Take a look at a plethora of prevention resources you could use to promote awareness and grab one!   

Then, take action using a resource that catches your attention.

  • Give a presentation for your school, work, or community.
  • Make a poster.
  • Share your activities on social media.
  • Save lives.

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.
