SAMHSA
March 26, 2013

Preventing Suicide: A Toolkit for High Schools assists in designing and implementing strategies to prevent suicide and promote behavioral health. It includes tools to implement a multifaceted suicide prevention program that responds to students' needs and cultures.

The toolkit will help schools:

  • Assess the ability to prevent suicide among students and to respond to suicides that may occur.
  • Understand strategies that can help students who are at risk for suicide.
  • Understand how to respond to the suicide of a student or other member of the school community.
  • Integrate suicide prevention into activities that fulfill other aspects of the school's mission, such as preventing the abuse of alcohol and other drugs.
