Two-Part Webinar: Suicide Prevention and Black, Indigenous and Other Students of Color (BISOC)

September 30, 2020 - October 14, 2020

Webinar Event

Suicide among our students is a tragic reality. As school board leaders, it can be difficult to know what to do or where to turn to address this issue. Addressing suicide with BISOC can be particularly challenging as there is less conversation and fewer resources centered on these students.

Join ASBA’s Black Alliance and Hispanic, Native American & Indian Caucus as we discuss the scope of this issue, risks and warning signs and the importance of culturally relevant support options as they pertain to our BISOC.
