Suicide Prevention & Response

NDE School Safety Suicide Prevention and Response resources support the efforts of school districts to protect the health and well-being of students and school communities. The Nebraska School Suicide Resource Guide(below)  is the site’s hub, with comprehensive resources for students, staff, and parents from the state and national levels. These additional resources support school districts’ prevention, intervention, and postvention efforts and are critical to their emergency plans and crisis response protocols.

“If you are troubled by thoughts of suicide, speak up. Asking for help is an act of bravery that will change your life for the better.”
– Caitlyn Miller, Author of Dealing with Suicidal Thoughts
