RY and CAST listed in new SAMHSA Resource
Both RY and CAST are listed in Preventing Suicide: A Toolkit for High Schools, a new resource released by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration, earlier this year. Ours are the ONLY programs listed under Skills-Building Programs for Individuals at Risk of Suicide.
Developed through a contract with the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors in collaboration with Education Development Center, the Toolkit aims at reducing the risk of suicide among high school students by providing research-based guidelines and resources to assist schools, providers and others to identify teenagers at risk and take appropriate measures to provide help. The toolkit offers information on screening tools, warning signs and risk factors of suicide, as well as statistics and education materials that are easily adaptable to any high school setting.
