Confronting Suicide: School and Community Response to Crisis


·         Alan Holmlund, Director, Massachusetts Suicide Prevention Program

·         Newton Public Schools Staff

·         Riverside Trauma Center

Confronting three student suicides within a three month time period last year, the Newton Public Schools’ response to the school and community crisis was highly acclaimed as a best practice and they will receive the coveted Martin T. Meehan Education Leadership Award for school safety at this conference. The preventative measures instituted by the Newton Public Schools include screening of students and the creation of a community-based group to support the prevention efforts.  Read more about this conference in the MPY Spring 2015 Newsletter.
