Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The revised 2020 Suicide Prevention Guidelines for Virginia Public Schools incorporate the recommendations made by the Governor’s Children’s Cabinet Student Safety Workgroup, reflect current research, align with partner state agency efforts, and link to a variety resources available to schools to support implementation. The document is a major revision in content and form and reflects current research on effective practice in approaches to suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention. The revised Guidelines address: suicide prevention and intervention; screening; risk factors; messaging to students, staff, and parents and caregivers about recognizing and reporting behaviors; how and where to report concerning behaviors; engaging students during key transitional periods when data indicate that suicide rates are higher; how to engage students who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts; how to support students returning to school after treatment; postvention; and how to engage with students after a member of their community has died by suicide.
