Educators and school staff are on the front lines of suicide prevention. Here's how to help students in distress
from The 74
When it comes to suicide prevention, school mental health professionals, teachers and staff are in a unique position to identify the warning signs from students who may want to harm themselves or others. These signs can range from withdrawal from normal activities and sudden behavioral changes to explicit statements that they are thinking of taking their own life. Educators have a unique perspective and can compare one student's behavior with that of others in the same age range and in the same environment.
