Topic: The Emotionally Naked Truth About Student Suicide

How does the funniest, most popular kid in school end up depressed, addicted to heroin, and deceased by suicide at age 20? And how can we make small culture shifts in schools to prevent the number two cause of death for 10-24 years olds in the Americas? Schools have something few other environments have and that’s an opportunity for genuine human connection which has gotten lost in the digital age. This is the most valuable currency in the education system. How can we leverage those opportunities for the emotional benefit of students?

Learning outcomes:

  • Signs of suicide and depression in young adults including social media posts
  • Small shifts that create an environment of student wellness
  • How to seamlessly build connection and coping skills into a school culture
  • Recognizing transitions that put people at risk
  • How students can support one another
  • Identifying healthy and unhealthy coping skills
