Learn about suicide prevention in schools

State policies AB2246 and AB1767 mandate that public schools serving grades K-12 adopt policies addressing suicide prevention, crisis response, and student mental health. This partnership launched in 2018 in response to a needs assessment conducted with school districts on their progress with implementing these policies.
