SOS (Signs of Suicide) Meeting

More Information

The SOS program is coming to Athens Middle School this month. It is a suicide prevention program through Nationwide Children's Hospital. The goal of the Signs of Suicide (SOS) Prevention Program is to reduce youth suicides by teaching students and staff to recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide and depression in themselves and others and to follow the ACT (Acknowledge, Care, Tell) message. 


The SOS program encourages conversation around mental health issues, including depression and suicide among school staff, families, and students. There are two key strategies to the program; an educational curriculum for students and adults, and a brief screening for depression and suicidal behavior, followed by a risk assessment for those students who need immediate help. Program components include training, peer-to-peer discussion, screenings, consultation, and caregiver/community education. This program is offered at no cost to the district. 


If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting "START" to 741-741. 


A Signs of Suicide (SOS) training session that is open to the public will be held on Monday, November 4 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the Athens Middle School Auditorium.


Visit the Suicide Prevention Resource Center website to learn more about this program.
