This is such valuable information for us to have whether we are a teacher or not, we are people and we need to do all we can to help those that may be struggling with some things and feel that that is the only answer. Its not, it's a moment that will pass. During my life I have had suicide impact my life very closely friends during high school, during my student teaching a 6th grade girl tried to take her life. This impacted all her friends and classmates, as well as staff and her family. I had a student that had a parent take their life, and I lost a very dear friend and co-worker to suicide. She was a 1st grade teacher and it had a HUGE impact on our whole community. This happened the day before we were to start state testing. We postponed it by a day and a grief team was brought in. We need to take every little sign seriously, any threat any joke...many should still be here. We are usually the first to see a sign, don't ignore it. This is full of valuable information. Thank you!
 
There was a lot of information about this I didn't know such as the youth cultural phenomena of aggrandizing suicide.

This is a topic that I'm very interested in. I have adopted 6 kids from the foster system (3 sib groups). They had extremely traumatic lives. In addition, I taught for almost 25 years in an inner city public school system. These signs, effects, etc. are so true. There are some good tips and links that I would like to make reference to in the future. Glad that I'm able to access this later also. Good info!
