When Tragedy Strikes Your School
Suicide in a school is tremendously sad, often unexpected, and can leave a community with many uncertainties about what to do next. This toolkit gives teachers and administrators practical tools and advice to help manage the situation in the aftermath of a suicide. The toolkit is available from
SPRC’s online library
The Lifeline is featured in Marvel comic "Captain America: A Little Help"
"Super heroes fight a lot of battles, but there are few more important than combating suicide," said Tom Brevoort, Senior Vice-President of Publishing. "That’s why we're making Captain America: A Little Help available for free via our digital comics outlets. If even one person calls this number instead of doing something very tragic, we know that means we succeeded."You can access the comic here.
