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 in HHS Region 5: IL, IN, MI, MN, OH, and WI.

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.
