Originally started in 2003, every year, September 10 is observed as World Suicide Prevention Day across the globe. Organised by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) in association with the World Health Organization (WHO), the day represents a worldwide commitment to preventing suicides and helping to save more lives.
This year’s theme is ‘Creating Hope Through Action’ which aims to ‘create a social movement of preventative action’. There are several ways to get involved to help do your part, like showing support on social media, sharing helpful resources, organising community events, plus much more.
To do our part in the prevention of suicide, our education solutions are designed to keep students safe while proactively identifying those in need. With our solutions NetSupport DNA (an IT Asset Management with online safety toolkit) and classroom.cloud (a cloud-based classroom management and teaching platform with online safety tools) schools can ensure students are protected from inappropriate content with powerful safeguarding features, including keyword and phrase monitoring with over 14,000 words/phrases covering topics from self-harm, bullying and drugs, through to risks of radicalisation.
In addition, to identify dangers as and when they occur, both solutions include a contextual intelligence-based Risk Index that automatically flags high-risk events and vulnerable students, assessing the context and history of the student’s activities to indicate their level of risk at the current moment in time – ensuring students receive help exactly when they need it.
