Partnering with Juvenile Justice Agencies for Suicide Prevention
Building relationships with juvenile justice agencies and doing suicide prevention work within them can be challenging endeavors – but they can also offer opportunities to foster ongoing, collaborative initiatives to keep youth safe. This event will give an overview of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s Juvenile Justice Task Force’s work and anticipated products, and provide examples of partnerships with state juvenile justice agencies. In addition, participants will learn about a suicide prevention curriculum specifically designed for corrections staff in juvenile justice facilities. Guest speakers include a representative from the Action Alliance’s Juvenile Justice Task Force, as well as two current state GLS grantees with substantial experience doing suicide prevention work in juvenile justice settings.
