THE 7 P’s OF SUICIDE PREVENTION

1.0 Toolkit Instructions

The Texas School Safety Center’s “7 P’s of Suicide Prevention” is designed to help school personnel improve their suicide prevention efforts. This toolkit was created to accompany The 7 P’s of Suicide Prevention video available on the Texas School Safety Center website. We recommend that school personnel and/or school crisis teams view the video or read the video script prior to working through the toolkit. This will provide context and assist with brainstorming before the discussion process.

This section will provide an example as to what each of the 7 P’s looks like. Below, we provide an example toolkit section and an example worksheet, which will assist you in working through each of the P’s. This section will also provide information on forming workgroups to complete the 7 P’s of Suicide Prevention worksheets and overall suicide prevention planning.
