New Postvention Guide for College Suicide | Nuevas guías a seguir después de una muerte por suicidio en el campus

A Guide for Response to Suicide on College Campuses (Postvention Guide)

This new resource was created to help all college and university professionals navigate one of the most difficult challenges a campus community can face: how to respond in the wake of a student suicide.

The Guide offers specific areas of consideration related to strategic postvenion planning, communicating with students, faculty, family and media, as well as clinical interventions. The resource also provides suggestions for best practices after a campus suicide to facilitate the grieving or adjustment process, stabilize the environment, reduce the risk of negative behaviors, and limit the risk of further suicides through contagion.
