Washington Education Funding and School District Budget Challenges

Students from South Shore PreK-8

Lifesaving Skills: Youth Suicide Prevention Through Social-Emotional Learning

Students from Summit Atlas Public School

September is Suicide Prevention Month, an opportunity to reflect on our collective responsibility to prioritize mental health and well-being and implement proactive strategies to prevent youth suicide. With youth suicide rates increasing and 22% of high schoolers seriously considering suicide within the past year — up from 16% in 2011, given the urgency of this issue, how can Washington state prioritize evidence-based investments in prevention for all young people?

Social-emotional learning is a powerful and cost-effective intervention to equip young individuals with essential skills tied to protective factors that play a pivotal role in reducing the likelihood of developing suicidal thoughts and behaviors. During this timely webinar, we share the impacts of social-emotional learning on youth suicide prevention and discuss possible pathways forward for Washington state to address this ongoing crisis.

Moderated by League of Education Voters Interim Co-CEO / Communications Director Arik Korman.

Special thanks to Committee for Children and the Washington state Legislative Youth Advisory Council (LYAC).

Spanish interpretation and closed captioning in English will be provided.
