When something traumatic such as a suicide occurs, the shock can reverberate through the family, community, or school environment, affecting the thoughts and feelings all concerned for extended periods of time. Teens are often hit especially hard. Therapy, open communication, community support, and personal coping skills are necessary for "recovery" from the negative effects of the trauma. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses suicidal thoughts in teens, national challenges and statistics, warning signs and problematic behaviors, and things to consider in school environments. She will also discuss possible ways the system has "failed" our youth and suggest possible ways to address those failures.

A great refresher for me....Most of your info on warning signs was very spot on and helped me spot a current student that is struggling with these thoughts and behaviors!

Very good information.
Important information for teachers to know. Not a very engaging presentation, but effective. I caution teachers on "rumors" versus "what I overheard" - for many students, especially in the young teen age group, the distinction is a difficult one and they may think they'll get in trouble for saying anything about overhearing someone.
Thank you for the resource. I found it to be very informative.
