Suicide Prevention Training
We strive to serve the emotional and physical needs of individuals across Washington state, especially our youth and our educators. Following the Washington Department of Health’s guidelines, Crisis Connections has created a suicide prevention training for middle school and high school students that are residing in King county and the surrounding areas. Each training will go over the common warning signs and symptoms of depression and suicidal behaviors. Students will also go over specific stressors, struggles, and challenges that are common among their age group. Our qualified trainers will work with schools to address specific behaviors and concerns that occur in their schools. (e.g., Self-Harm, Bullying, Racism, etc.) These trainings are designed to help teens identify warnings signs and learn how to help themselves and/or the people they encounter on a daily basis, who may be dealing with a mental challenge.
