Youth suicide now falls within the top three leading causes of death among children and young adults between the ages of 10-24. Numerous states have reacted to this crisis by creating legislation to address the role of schools in suicide prevention. While well-intentioned, these laws vary significantly from state to state and don’t always represent current best practices for suicide awareness and prevention programs.

In this webinar, Scott Poland, Ed.D., an internationally recognized expert on school crisis and youth suicide, guided you through:

  • The current status and variability of suicide prevention legislation in America
  • His outline of comprehensive best practice recommendations for state legislation
  • A brief review of the lawsuits against schools after student suicides with a lesson learned summary
