MAKING THE DIFFERENCE: Preventing Youth Suicide and Promoting Resilience 

Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for teens in the U.S. and suicide rates have doubled for middle school aged girls in the last decade.  The 2017 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance survey results from the CDC found that 7.6% of high school students in Florida surveyed admitted to making a suicide attempt in the last 12 months.  The few states that surveyed middle school students found that 10.0% made a suicide attempt in the last 12 months. 

The presentation will outline the importance of everyone knowing the warning signs of youth suicide.  Participants will learn about national and state suicide prevention resources.  Additionally protective factors against youth suicide and the keys to resilience for youth will be emphasized.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify protective factors against youth suicide.
  • Identify key myths about suicide.
  • Identify the relationship between self-injury and suicide.
  • Recognize the complex relationship between bullying and
    suicide for youth.

Excellent presentation with not only key issues, but real solutions.

by Ashley Firrantello

After working in the public school system for many years I see the need for this information to be put into mandatory trainings for every teacher. Teachers should have to go through training prior to their start date and at minimum once a year there after.

The course offered clear examples of warning signs, engagement questions, and personal stories that make me better prepared when spending time with the teens in the GAL system. It is an excellent resource that is worth a second watch.
