Comprehensive Suicide Prevention and Intervention for LEPs
5.5 hours running time
After reviewing the mandate for comprehensive suicide prevention generated by the adoption of AB 2246 (which has required the governing boards of all California school districts that serve student in grades 7-12 to adopt a comprehensive suicide prevention policy beginning this fall) this workshop will review activities judged to be consistent with the intent of this law. It will review primary suicide prevention, immediate suicide intervention, and suicide postvention activities.
