 News from our Social Workers

Educating our students about how to care for themselves and friends is an important task.  To proactively address these issues we are offering multiple prevention training programs that align with depression awareness and suicide prevention training. These programs include:

  • Signs of Suicide Program for 6th and 9th grade students. The program was developed by the highly regarded non-profit organization and is used by thousands of schools nationwide since 2000. It has proven successful at increasing help seeking by students concerned about themselves or a friend (American Journal of Public Health, March 2004).

Safe2Tell Colorado is required to be part of school safety planning by the Colorado Department of Education. Programming focuses on educating students on the importance of reporting concerns and how to anonymously report to Safe2Tell Colorado.
