If your school has lost someone to suicide, After a Suicide: A Toolkit for Schools offers best practices and practical tools to help schools in the aftermath of a suicide.
In collaboration with the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention offers After a Suicide: A Toolkit for Schools to help schools respond in the aftermath of a suicide death.
This newly revised resource (2018) provides information for school administrators and other school staff who wish to implement a coordinated response to the suicide. The toolkit provides information on how best to communicate and support the school community and manage the crisis response. Also found in the toolkit is information on helping students cope, communicating with parents, working with the community, and engaging external resources for support.
