How Would You Respond If Your Child Told You Their Friend Might Be Thinking About Suicide?

Helping Your Child Save a Life is a one-hour suicide prevention training for parents/guardians to recognize warning signs and respond when your child ACTs.

If your child has taken SOS (Signs of Suicide) with SpeakUp ReachOut in Eagle County Schools, they have learned to ACT:

  • Acknowledge: signs of suicide in a friend.

  • Care: show your friend you care.

  • Tell: tell a trusted adult.

What we will cover:

  • Youth suicide prevention basics

  • ACT (Acknowledge, Care, Tell)

  • What to do when your child or a child you know ACTs

  • Building coping skills

This training is made possible by the Slifer Smith & Frampton Foundation – Eagle County
