Suicide Prevention Guidance

Each year, Northwest ISD recognizes the national suicide prevention month, September. During this time, secondary campuses utilize the SOS Signs of Suicide® Prevention Program to bring awareness of depression and prevention.       

The program aims to increase awareness and encourages students to seek help when they are concerned about themselves or a friend. The message of the SOS program is to A-C-T – Acknowledge the signs of depression or suicide; show you Care; and Tell a trusted adult.

In addition to the school program, Tidwell Middle School utilizes a resource for parents and students, the SOS Signs of Suicide Portal, as a part of our school-wide suicide prevention efforts. This portal is designed to provide parents with information about our suicide prevention efforts and helpful tools for supporting your child’s mental health. Resources include a video, a parental screening tool, and educational materials. School personnel will not be utilizing the SOS screening tool; however, as a parent, you may find the screening tool useful.
