Suicide Postvention: The Critical Role of Educators

  • R.S. 17.437.71 requires that all public school teachers, counselors, principals and other school administrators participate annually in at least two hours of in-service training in suicide prevention. The model policy requires professional development so that educators and other school staff have the training necessary to be able to identify, support, and refer students who are vulnerable to suicide.
