30 School Gatekeepers attend Umatter for Schools

Thirty (30) school gatekeepers from around New England recently attended The Center for Health and Learning’s 2-day Umatter® For Schools training on October 1 & 2, in Montpelier, VT.

Umatter® for Schools is a national best practice program for suicide prevention developed by the Center for Health and Learning.  The trainings are created for middle and high schools and provide comprehensive school-based suicide prevention strategies and programs, including protocols, staff and parent training, and support curriculum for students.  Schools are encouraged to send teams consisting of an administrator, guidance counselor, nurse, health educator and/or mental health provider.  

Some quotes from our recent training exit evaluations:

"This is the first time that I have been at a training whereby we could bring back a completed document, thank you!"

"Thank you for putting on this training. It has been so helpful to have dedicated time to think about this work and what our school’s needs are. The handouts are very helpful and have provided many great ideas about language to use with students as well as adults around suicide and ideation, threats and attempts."

"This is a very comprehensive training on a very sensitive and difficult topic. Materials are provided to make it incredibly simple to move forward with staff and community training. Thank you for helping remove the stigma of bringing this topic into our schools/communities."
