Suicide Prevention

Monroe School District Cares

The Signs of Suicide Prevention Program is a district-approved and evidence-based curriculum that is delivered to students in grades 6-12 each year. The program teaches students how to recognize warning signs of depression and suicide in themselves or friends, and then how to ACT (Acknowledge, Care, and Tell) to get help from a trusted adult. This program helps equip our students to break the silence of depression and suicide, and potentially save a life!
