Students are encouraged to invite their “Trusted Adults” to join them in this engaging evening. Adults will learn more about their role in helping teens at risk and students will learn how and who to ask for help.
The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, in partnership with 2nd Floor Youth Helpline, the New Jersey TLC and Rutgers Health, University Behavioral Health Care invite high school students across New Jersey to submit a public service announcement (PSA) focused on messages of hope.
Educators are in a critical but limited role to listen to vulnerable youth, observe warning signs for suicide, and refer or connect students to resources.
SPTS is here to help educators understand this role with an acclaimed online training program that is self-paced, comprehensive—and offered free of charge!
