ABOUT THIS SEMINAR

The numbers for suicide among students continue to trend upward – to the point that many states and districts now require teachers and other educators to be trained in suicide awareness. Last year’s vastly popular NetFlix series, 13 Reasons Why, served to increase the discussion about suicide but also increased online searches on how to commit suicide by 26 percent. At the same time, non-suicidal self-injury, including cutting, has increased at an alarming rate over the past decade.

Many students experience emotional or mental health issues at some point in their academic careers. For some students, these issues can escalate into severe behaviors – behaviors that are harmful to the student and/or to others. Educators are in a unique position to identify and potentially help struggling students. This seminar will help teachers, counselors, nurses, social workers, principals and other administrators identify, reach, teach and refer students with serious mental health concerns.

A daunting amount of information is now available about mental health issues. The complexity of much of this information sometimes leads to misunderstandings, tentativeness, and possible mistakes in handling mental health issues with students.

Author, expert and acclaimed speaker Kaye Randall will address this very serious topic with straight-forward insights, appropriate humor, innovative prevention strategies and "how-to-handle"; tips for real cases in classrooms and schools. Interpreting mental health behaviors according to intensity, frequency, duration and impact will also be addressed – including what to do when a student has moved into a crisis phase.
