More Than Sad is a suicide prevention education program developed by The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to help increase teachers’ knowledge and understanding of suicidal behavior in youth, its causes, treatment, and prevention.
Goals of training:
To increase understanding of the problem of youth suicide, the risk factors that can lead to suicide, and the treatment and prevention of suicidal behavior in adolescents.
To increase knowledge of the warning signs of youth suicide, so that teachers and other adults who work with teens are better prepared to identify and refer students who may be at risk.
This course meets the new Arizona legislative requirement for mandatory suicide awareness training for school staff.
Participants must attend the full 2-3 hours of instruction to receive the certificate of completion.
