Suicide Prevention Training for Parents November 29
Suicide Prevention Training for parents will be offered on Thursday, November 29, from 7- 8:30 p.m. in the Mount Si High School library, on the main campus.
Developed by Forefront Suicide Prevention at the University of Washington, parents and adults who participate in this training will learn the five simple and effective L.E.A.R.N.® steps designed to empower individuals to help others move in the direction of hope, recovery, and survival. These steps play an important role in helping recognize when peers, friends, and family members might be having thoughts of suicide, and to know how and where to refer those individuals to keep them safe.
Over 1,600 SVSD parents, students, and staff have received the L.E.A.R.N. training so far. This year, 9th grade students will receive this training in December.
This training is endorsed by the Mount Si High School PTSA, Associated Student Body and Natural Helpers, and the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network.
