SOS is a nationally recognized suicide prevention program that:
• Decreases suicide attempts by students
• Increases the ability of participants to identify signs and symptoms of depression and suicide and to respond in a way that keeps students safe
• Encourages students to seek help for themselves or a friend and increases a sense of hope
The SOS program teaches students that suicide is preventable by promoting the ACT® message. When anyone notices warning signs of depression or suicide, they should take the following actions:
• Acknowledge there is a serious concern
• Care: Show the person they Care
• Tell a trusted adult
