You are not alone. If you are a survivor of suicide loss or have lived experience with suicidal ideation, telling your story can help you and others who are struggling. Visit https://afsp.org/blog/ to share your story and learn about the experiences of others.
There are some short video clips on the home page. If you only have time to watch one, I recommend Advice for Family and Friends. If you have time to browse the blogs (Real Stories) or write your own, it may help you find peace.
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.
