Norwood Public Schools Suicide Prevention and Intervention Resources
In 2016 the Norwood Public Schools established a community-wide committee to develop a Suicide Prevention and Intervention Plan. As part of that process, the district also updated our grade 6-12 Health and Wellness curriculum that is designed to inform and help protect our students from all forms of harmful behaviors, including suicide. In addition, each year we train our educators on suicide prevention and intervention which includes recognizing suicide risk factors and warning signs, and protocols for reporting concerns.
