SOS Signs of Suicide
Signs of Self-Injury Prevention Program
The Self-Injury Prevention Program is a safe and effective way to teach students the basics about addressing self-injury and encourages help-seeking behaviors through the ACT® technique (Acknowledge, Care, Tell). The program includes:
A step-by-step implementation guide and comprehensive planning materials
An educational video (DVD and streaming video) and discussion guide with a track for students and a track for faculty/staff training
Two tools to identify students in need: a self-assessment tool and response cards that encourage help-seeking
A one-year license for the SOS online portal that allows implementers to stream video, download and reproduce materials and engage directly with parents. Parents can access the portal to learn about youth suicide prevention, sample SOS Program videos, and take an online mental health screening on behalf of their child.

Please Note: Although they aren’t required for program implementation, we offer comprehensive trainings for program implementers and suicide/self-injury prevention champions.
