September is Suicide Prevention month in the United States. This month The Downs Group LLC will provide a variety of resources for you related to suicide prevention with youth, and especially for youth living in foster care.

During the month we will cover the warning signs, risk factors and triggers of youth suicide and will be very specific about what you can do if you suspect a youth is suicidal. We will provide quotes from teens, parents and professionals about suicide and will highlight several programs that are doing outstanding suicide prevention work.

This month we are also introducing something called Research You Can Use. These will be very short, easy to understand digests of recent research on teen suicide prevention that you can put into your practice or work immediately with youth.

We will also be offering you free resources to have at your desk at all times so that if or when the moment comes to know more about youth suicide, it will be at your fingertips. Be watching for these resources throughout the month.

The Downs Group LLC offers a one day training on “Suicide Prevention with Youth” at a sales prices this month. If you would like this course delivered at your location, you can get 33% off the list price by ordering before September 30, 2017!

We also offer a Strategic Sharing event at your location on Teen Suicide Prevention. Please be on the lookout for details.
