Book Description

Let’s Talk About Suicide: Raising Awareness and Supporting Students includes a facilitator’s guide with handouts and a PowerPoint presentation. This adaptable resource offers a sensitive, respectful, and detailed training on suicide awareness and response. It can be used for two-hour synchronous training or for self-study. It was developed to reduce the stigma around suicide and to help faculty and staff acquire the skills and confidence to ask if a student is considering suicide, listen to that student in a non-judgmental way, and refer the student to appropriate resources. This resource was created to be accessible, adaptable, culturally located, evidence-informed, inclusive, and trauma-informed.
