By the start of the next school year, all California schools must have adopted a school suicide policy under Assembly Bill 2246, passed into law last year.

Is your school prepared? CASP can fix that. Drs. Stephen Brock and Susan Coats and suicide prevention expert Richard Lieberman will present a full-day workshop on Friday, March 24, at Spring Institute. Bring your administrator to “Comprehensive Suicide Prevention: Meeting the Mandates of AB2246” to will make sure schools serving grades 7-12 in your district meet the requirements of the new law.
