SOS Signs of Suicide - Suicide Prevention Program
In October, Faircrest Memorial Middle School is offering a depression awareness and suicide prevention training as part of the SOS Signs of Suicide ® Prevention Program. The program aims to increase help seeking by students concerned about themselves or a friend. Mrs. Rauckhorst will be visiting 7th grade classrooms in October to present the Signs of Suicide curriculum to students. During the lesson students will complete a pre and post test, view a Signs of Suicide video, complete an anonymous screening form for adolescent depression, and turn in a student response card to indicate whether further follow-up is wanted. School staff will be trained on how to address a potentially depressed or suicidal student prior to the student lesson. Members of the Care Team will follow-up with students that indicate they need to talk to someone on the Student Response Card.
