Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention

Youth Suicide Awareness and Prevention Model Policy Publication

Pursuant to Section 170.048, RSMo, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) developed a model policy regarding youth suicide awareness and prevention. This model policy may be adopted by Missouri school districts to meet the requirements of Section 170.048, RSMo which provides as follows:

  1. By July 1, 2018, each district shall adopt a policy for youth suicide awareness and prevention, including plans for how the district will provide for the training and education of its district employees. (1)The Union R-XI School District adopted Policy JHDF for youth suicide awareness and prevention.
  2. Each district's policy shall address, but not be limited to, the following: 
    (1) Strategies that can help identify students who are at possible risk of suicide; (2) Strategies and protocols for helping students at possible risk of suicide; and (3) Protocols for responding to a suicide death.

This model policy is intended to serve as a template for our district in developing suicide prevention policy. We are currently meeting as a team to adapt and customize the model policy to best address and meet the needs of our school community.
