Free Suicide Prevention Training Module from OSPI
OSPI, in partnership with BASE Education and the National Center for School Engagement, has developed a training module to help educators recognize when a student is in emotional or behavioral distress including risk for suicide. The module will help school staff to identify students who may be at risk and provides strategies on how to safely and effectively refer a student for help.
The Confident Action and Referral by Educators (CARE) module is a free, one-hour resource that is available to anyone who works with students in Washington State. CARE may be taken individually or in a group, and a Facilitator Guide is provided to guide staff through the specific examples, discussion questions, additional resources, and role play exercises.
