Suicide Prevention Education

Wyoming has the highest suicide rate in the nation, at more than twice the national average, and nationally, suicide is the second leading cause of death among adolescents. Advocates say suicide prevention education is a way to address the problem. A bill to require suicide prevention education in schools died during the last legislative session, but the issue is now before the Wyoming State Board of Education, which is recommending suicide prevention awareness be added to the state health curriculum for grades six through twelve.

Schools are a key setting for suicide prevention. Teachers, mental health providers, and all other school personnel who interact with students can play an important role in keeping them safe. 

  • Maintaining a safe school environment is part of your school's overall mission. 

  • Students' mental health can affect how well they perform in school. 

  • Suicide can affect the entire school community.
