What Teachers are saying:
…..Anne Moss Rogers has focused her latest work on teachers, whom she sees as a vital link between troubled students and the professionals who can help them cope with suicidal thoughts. In her new book, Emotionally Naked: A Teacher’s Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk, she and co-author Kimberly O’Brien give teachers the information and tools they need to help reduce suicide in young people.
“(Teachers) see millions of adolescents nationwide,” Rogers explained in our podcast interview. “Their eyes, ears, gut feelings, and all of that are a critical part of the workflow of demoting suicide as a cause of death in young people. Their relationships with students are a vital asset to that process. Think of teachers as a bridge from students who are struggling to the resources like the school counseling team, their parents and mental health resources.”
