Suicide among school-aged youth is a growing concern, and school personnel have a legal obligation to provide suicide prevention programming to faculty and staff. School counselors have the skills to provide such training, as well as to inform staff and faculty of school policy and procedures for referring potentially suicidal students. A step-by-step model is provided for school counselors to use and adapt for suicide in-service training.
