SUICIDE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMMING IN NSBORO
Signs of Suicide (SOS) is an evidence-based suicide prevention program for adolescents.
Students in 7th, 9th, and 11th grade will participate in this program as part of our Wellness programming.
When teens are struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide, it is common for them to turn to each other. This is why it’s important for every student to know when to ACT (ACKNOWLEDGE the signs of suicide or depression, Show that you CARE, and TELL an adult).
The Public Schools of Northborough and Southborough are committed to supporting the social, emotional, and academic development and well-being of our students.
We know that rates of anxiety, depression, and social isolation are at record high rates for children and adolescents.
Our school data shows several trends and areas of need.
This webinar series is targeted at providing immediate support to families by addressing the topics of mental health, suicidality, cyber-safety and promoting wellness and building resilience.
