Every 4 hours a child commits suicide in America. As educators, we need to learn to recognize students at risk for suicide, identify warning signs of suicide, take preventative precautions, and report suicide threats to appropriate parental and professional authorities. This PowerPoint(Suicide & Crisis Presentation 2014), as presented by Dr. Randy Siler at CCESC Opening Day 2014, provides educators an overview of preventing suicide, intervening with students who may be suicidal, and providing postvention for those affected by a completed suicide.
