  • National Police Week 2018: National Police Week begins Sunday, May 13 and runs through Saturday, May 19 this year. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.
  • After a Suicide: The suicide of a student can leave a school faced with grieving students, faculty, and staff; distressed parents; media attention; and a community struggling to understand what happened and why. Suicide postvention efforts address the need for predetermined strategies to effectively and sensitively respond to deaths after they occur and allow for schools and campuses to implement a coordinated response. A good postvention plan can also have a positive impact on prevention.
