Suicide Awareness and Prevention

SHS Depression and Suicide Prevention Plan

Youth suicide impacts the safety of the school environment. It also affects the school community, diminishing the ability of surviving students to learn and the school's ability to educate. Suicide and depression awareness and prevention are important to the the well being of Streator HIgh School.  Streator High has protocols for administering youth suicide awareness and prevention education to students and staff. 

These awareness and prevention programs include curriculum in the required Health Program, inclusion in the SEL monthly topics, training for faculty and staff on signs of suicidal ideation, how to approach a student and how to access services for the student at risk of suicide.  All Certified Teachers have received Mental Health First Aide Training.

To request support at school, a parent, peer or the student themselves can contact a guidance counselor or social worker if you have any concerns over the safety of a student.  

If school is not in session contact:  

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-273-8255 you can call or text.
