OSSE has partnered with the Light for Life Foundation to deliver suicide prevention staff training and student curriculum for elementary school. The “Be A Link! Community Gate Keeper Training” trains participants how to deliver intervention to school-based staff, parents/guardians and other adults on recognizing warning signs, risk factors and protective factors in youth, as well as how to initiate conversations about suicide and take appropriate supportive action.
