Know the Signs

Know the Signs

The Division of Student Services and Exceptional Student Education in collaboration with Sandy Hook Promise provided a Signs of Suicide (SOS) Training at Indian River State College for school psychologists, social workers, guidance counselors, and district leaders. The SOS program uses an educational curriculum to teach students to recognize the symptoms of depression and suicide, and can be implemented by existing school personnel within one class period.

At its core, the SOS Program relies on three easy-to-remember steps, denoted by the acronym ACT:

  • Acknowledge that you are seeing warning signs and that it is serious
  • Care let your friends know how much you care about them
  • Tell a trusted adult that you are worried about your friend
