Suicide Prevention Resources

If you observe warning signs and need to seek help, consult your healthcare provider or mental health professional. In life-threatening situations, call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room. In a crisis, you can call or text 988 (for English or Spanish) to be connected to trained counselors in the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network. For TTY users, use your preferred relay service or dial 711 then 988.

Children and young people can have thoughts of suicide for many reasons, especially when they experience life stressors that feel overwhelming and they struggle to cope. TTUSD is committed to ensuring all students are supported and resources are available at every school. TTUSD partners with the Tahoe Truckee Suicide Prevention Coalition. We provide trainings for staff and student leaders to recognize the signs of suicide. Below is a list of resources for students, staff and parents. If you know of a student who is struggling emotionally/mentally, please contact the child's school for support and help.
