Teen suicide prevention
To proactively address the issue of teen suicide, the Bromfield School is offering screening and prevention training as part of the SOS Signs of Suicide® Prevention Program, which has been used by thousands of schools over the past nine years. The program has proven successful in reaching students concerned about themselves or a friend.
The school’s goal is that all 9th- and 10th-grade students will have participated in this program or a similar suicide education program by the end of this school year. Teachers and staff have also participated in training to be aware of signs of depression and suicidal thoughts and how to respond to students who may approach them for help.
