Suicide Prevention

The Great Lakes MHTTC School-Based Mental Health Supplement is designed to support schools in creating environments that reduce the risk factors for suicide.

Suicide has climbed to be the second leading cause for death among school-aged youth in the United States. Educators are key players in carrying out suicide prevention strategies for school-aged youth. As students spend on average over 1,000 hours at school each year, schools play a vital role in the health and wellbeing of our young people.
