This document provides an update and revision of the Connecticut Guidelines for Suicide Prevention: Policy & Procedures. New to this revision is the proposal that suicide prevention should be coordinated with, rather than compete with, other prevention initiatives in schools. Also new is material about coordinating with resources that have emerged with the expansion of Connecticut’s mental health system for children. Finally, the inclusion of students & families in the planning, development, & evaluation of suicide prevention efforts is encouraged. (20 refs)
