Online Suicide Prevention Classes?

  • 1.  Online Suicide Prevention Classes?

    Posted 01-04-2020 11:34 AM
    Are there any  1 hour online suicide prevention classes that would meet requirements to renew my MN Pre-K teaching license?  Seems like the classes I am finding are either expensive, 5 hours longs, or not applicable at all....I am not currently teaching in a public school so I don't have the option to take anything offered in the school.

    Suicide Prevention Strategies
    MN Statute 122A.187, Subdivision 6 further requires at least one hour of suicide prevention best practices
    training during each licensure renewal period based on nationally recognized evidence-based programs and
    practices.

    Check with your insurance provider.  Granted, I am a part of a larger school, but I believe that we were able to utilize resources from our insurance company to fulfill our requirement.  You might also check with other social agencies (ex: Council of Jewish Women or other faith-based organizations may have resources available).
