Parent and Community Education on Monday, October 23, 2017 at 7:00 in the California High School Theatre
Suicide Prevention Presentation by Contra Costa Crisis Center
The mental health of our students is a top priority in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. According to the California Department of Education, 20 percent of the State’s kindergarten through 12th grade students struggle with mental health issues that impact their relationships at home, in school and in the community. Sometimes these feelings lead to students silently contemplating suicide.
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has been a leader in providing suicide prevention education in our schools. These efforts have been reinforced with the passage of Assembly Bill 2246: Pupil Suicide Prevention Policies.
As part of the District’s education on mental health, there will be a Suicide Prevention Presentation on Monday, October 23 at 7 p.m. in the California High School Theater. The presentation is a general overview and introduction to suicide prevention where participants explore the issue of suicide, learn current suicide related statistics, how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, and how to get help.
