Signs of Suicide (SOS) Program Letter and Resources

Montgomery County Public School (MCPS) has chosen an evidenced-based approach to help prevent youth suicide: SOS Signs of Suicide. SOS includes training and resources for faculty/staff and parents/guardians. Most importantly, SOS focuses on teaching students how to identify warning signs and seek help for themselves or a friend. All MCPS students Grades 9-12 will receive a lesson from a trained facilitator on the signs of suicide and resources and tools to seek help.
