Suicide Prevention

The El Segundo Unified School District recognizes the importance of recognizing warning signs for suicide to prevent, intervene, and provide post-care for students who have considered or attempted suicide.  In accord with California Assembly Bill 2246, ESUSD implements a suicide prevention, intervention, and post-vention policy that specifically addresses the needs of high risk groups.  Included in the policy is suicide prevention awareness training for ESUSD staff as well as students at the secondary level.
