Suicide Intervention

The Beaverton School District takes suicide concerns very seriously. School staff will follow the BSD Suicide Intervention Protocol for all students identified as being at risk for suicide. Trained suicide screeners (school counselors, school psychologists, and administrators) will interview students of concern to assess risk, notify the parent/guardian immediately, and develop a comprehensive Student Support Plan to ensure safety and ongoing monitoring. Interventions may include additional assessment/evaluation and safety planning through the Washington County Crisis Team, the local Emergency Department, and/or consultation with law enforcement. If you have concerns about your student, please contact his/her school counselor to discuss how the school can best provide support. If you need immediate assistance, please call 911 or the 24 hour Washington County Crisis Line at 503-291-9111.
