General Suicide Education

Our school-based programs provide students with facts about suicide, alert them to suicide risk factors and warning signs, and provide them with help-seeking information for themselves or for others. These programs highlight protective factors and incorporate a variety of self-care strategies.

School gatekeeper training

This type of program is directed at school staff (teachers, counselors, coaches, etc.) to help them identify students at risk of suicide and refer them for help. These programs also train staff on how to respond in cases of a tragic death or other crisis in school.

Community gatekeeper training

This type of gatekeeper program provides training to community members such as first responders, medical, clergy, merchants, and recreation staff. This training is designed to help community members identify youth at risk of suicide and refer them for help. 

Educational Programs

With Hope Foundation is committed to supporting our schools' efforts in suicide prevention through education. We have pledged to make available speakers, materials, and resources to effectively educate our youth and community in the following ways:

NEVER PROMISE TO KEEP THIS SECRET." - Patti
