Teen Suicide Prevention Symposium
19th Annual Teen Suicide Prevention Symposium




Suicide is regarded as the "preventable epidemic" among youth in Texas and in the nation. An average of 1 person every 13.7 minutes dies by suicide in our country. The Suicide Prevention Symposium brings together educators and community members in a forum to take action and help save the lives of challenged youth through awareness, intervention, and prevention. CEU credits will be available.

Important Session Information:


Recent research in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic suggests that the mental health dangers of suicide and self harm have been persistent in our school-aged youth and teens. Each year, ESC Region 12 educators, leaders, and stakeholders come together to renew our charge for school safety and student mental health as we unite in this fight to save our teens from the devastating impacts of mental health crises and suicide. Join us once again in this charge, as we explore local, state, and national resources, hear from those impacted by suicide loss, and learn more about vulnerable populations in our Texas schools. 

ESC Region 12 will be hosting our partners from the Central Texas RAC to provide CEU credits for persons who hold certification as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel. Please see the statement below regarding the award of Continuing Education Credits as they apply:
