The Anacortes School District will be providing a National, Evidence Based, Suicide Prevention training for all Middle and High School Students beginning the end of January and continuing through February of this year. 

The district has chosen the curriculum called Signs of Suicide that is created through Screening For Mental Health, Inc.

The SOS Signs of Suicide Prevention Program is the only youth suicide prevention program that has demonstrated an improvement in students' knowledge and adaptive attitudes about suicide risk and depression, as well as a reduction in actual suicide attempts.  SOS is a universal, school-based depression awareness and suicide prevention program designed for middle-school and high-school students.  

Both the middle and high school programs provide age-appropriate materials for students.  There are also materials for staff, parents, and community members that outline the program objectives and prevention efforts.

There will be a parent and community information session on January 24th, 2019 in the Anacortes High School Commons from 6 PM to 7 PM.  This will be facilitated by a certified SOS trainer.
