Webinar | School Suicide Prevention
May 17th, 2022
2:00-3:00PM EDT

Join a fireside chat with a moderated panel of national education and suicide prevention experts and leaders who discuss why there is increased attention to suicide prevention in districts and schools and the effective strategies or programs that greatly enhance these efforts.

About the Event

As leaders and educators move quickly to support the mental health needs of students, they have also acknowledged that suicide prevention is an important topic that often requires more support in practice and policy than has traditionally existed.

Join our EDC Solutions for Education & Wellbeing team on Tuesday, May 17th at 2pm EST for a fireside chat with a moderated panel of national education experts and leaders. Our panelists will discuss the increased need and attention to suicide prevention in schools. They will discuss effective strategies and programs that they have seen greatly enhance suicide prevention efforts at the district, school, and classroom levels. 

We invite you to contribute to this rich conversation and hope our recommended resources prove helpful. If you are unable to join the webinar, register anyway and we’ll send you post-event materials.
