Suicide Prevention Resources for Schools

The Schools Committee makes recommendations on programs and processes for improving suicide prevention, intervention and postvention in Oregon schools and colleges.

Part of the work this Committee is working on is SB 52, also known as Adi’s Act. More information about Adi’s Act can be found here. To help schools implement this in their districts, the Alliance created a document that shows some resources created for schools. This, as well as other school resources, can be found below.

This guide was created by the Willamette Education Service District and Lines for Life. This resource is guided by the principle that suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention is everyone’s business and that our schools need an approachable, easy-to-use guide for creating a policy that reflects that.

Resources were compiled for the purpose of supporting staff in their suicide prevention planning, preparation, and implementation efforts. This list is a tailored selection of entries based on three guiding factors: 1)supporting evidence and research, 2)relevance and usefulness to Oregon schools, and 3)contributing individual value to a comprehensive suicide prevention approach.
