This series of modules, about the School-Based Suicidal Ideation Response Protocol (SI Protocol), is NOT suicide prevention training.

These modules are designed to assist school personnel in the implementation of the SI Protocol.

While this series does NOT contain disturbing images, we acknowledge the sensitivity of the subject matter.
