With suicide being the second leading cause of death for school-aged youth, schools need to have a well-defined and consistent intervention process to immediately and effectively address concerns. The SBQ-R (Suicide Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised) is a brief evidence-based suicide risk assessment tool to support this process. This training provides resources to help school mental health professionals prepare staff to identify suicide risk factors, warning signs, and protective factors, establish or strengthen the school’s risk assessment and intervention process, and understand how to administer and interpret the SBQ-R to support the intervention efforts.
