Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Specialized Training on Suicide Prevention for Los Angeles School District Administration and Staff: A Grant Proposal
by Alvarado, Alejandra, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 53; 13813647
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the project was to fund a suicide prevention training program for all school personnel and administration of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD). The program will better support the students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade, as well as continuing education, by early detecting youth at risk of suicide. LASUD School of Mental Health (SMH) will be the hosting agency where they assist in the academic success, mental health and overall welfare of the youth attending LAUSD.

After a thorough review of the literature, the grant writer identified a lack of training of school personnel and administrators of primary, middle, and secondary academic institutes. Therefore, the grant writer designed a training program to educate and evaluate the skills of school staff in preparation for suicide prevention and crisis intervention. The funding source was selected due to the most suitable match for funding for a project of such and their current and past funding programs geared towards existing programs in Los Angeles for mental health and suicide prevention.

The actual submission and funding of this grant were not obligatory for the achievement of this project.
