Umatter for Schools
Youth Suicide Prevention




Updated Content & New Design!


Umatter for Schools is a national best practice program for suicide prevention developed by Center for Health & Learning.  These trainings are created for Vermont middle and high schools to meet the requirements of Vermont state law. 


Schools are encouraged to send teams consisting of an administrator, guidance counselor, nurse, health educator, and/or mental health provider.  Schools who have sent teams in the past are encouraged to send newly hired or assigned staff to support mental health and suicide prevention strategies in the school.


 At the end of this training participants will be prepared to:


-       Identify and help youth who show signs of suicide

      -       Provide parent and staff awareness sessions

      -       Develop prevention/postvention policies and protocols

       -      Implement the Lifelines evidence-based curriculum for students



This newly designed training consists of a webinar
and a full day training


      An Introduction to Gatekeeper Training with Updated Information
