As Part of our Health/Character Education program, New Jersey State Law requires Suicide Awareness/Prevention Education.* During the month of February, the Counseling Department will be presenting a Suicide Awareness/Prevention Lesson for Middle School students. This lesson will provide a basic definition, background (from various statistics), warning signs and what can be done to help.
*Suicide Prevention (N.J.S.A, 18A: 6-111) requires instruction in suicide prevention in public schools.
Inclusion of suicide prevention awareness shall be included in the Common Core Content Standards in Comprehensive Health and Physical Education.
