As awareness grows about the alarming increase in youth suicide rates, school leaders need information on suicide prevention and postvention. Tragically, the search often begins only after the school community has suffered the loss of a student. Schools must start to be proactive and educate themselves about risk factors and prevention strategies. Designed as a handbook for busy educators, A Culture of Caring: A Suicide Prevention Guide for Schools (K--12) includes information about prevention, intervention, and postvention along with commentary from experts in the field. Each chapter stands alone and does not have to be read in sequence. Resources and descriptions of programs relevant to each chapter are organized by topic. School leaders, counselors, and teachers can use the information to create their own plans or just glance through it to get ideas. With this book, any school community that takes suicide prevention seriously will have access the knowledge, tools and resources to save lives.
Theodora Schiro was a teacher and school administrator for over 36 years, and now works to increase awareness of depression and other mental health disorders by educating school personnel in suicide prevention. She is also a freelance writer for non-profits and businesses that provide educational products and services.
