Suicide Intervention Considerations in the Virtual Environment
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for students between the ages of 10 and 19. Despite this, suicide is preventable when students in need are connected to appropriate supports.

This session will focus on the considerations for suicide intervention in a virtual, distance learning environment.
