Sandy Hook Promise provides the Say Something program at no-cost to schools and community-based organizations (nonprofits, faith-based institutions, after school programs, and other youth-serving agencies) nationwide – to protect our kids and save lives.
In addition to the core Say Something course, Sandy Hook Promise is releasing several new Say Something offerings, including a “Prevent Suicide” training and “Being A Trusted Adult” workshop, as well as distance learning options.
Each course includes a training video plus educational resources – all provided at no cost. Programs also align with Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) competencies for relationship skills, social awareness, responsible decision-making, and self-awareness.
Say Something is designed for grades 6-12, with “Prevent Suicide” and “Trusted Adult” courses to augment the core program for educators and parents who work to create safer communities. By knowing what signs to look for, building a culture of “looking out for one another,” and reporting possible threats of violence, entire communities will become safer and lives will be saved.
Say Something teaches the warning signs and behaviors that could lead to someone hurting themselves or others. It teaches individuals how to safely report these signals and potential threats and provides tools to help promote and reinforce the training.
Say Something trainings are delivered using videos or a do-it-yourself presentations. Educator guides and supporting materials are provided for each.
Available to select districts and state-wide partnerships, this tool builds on the core Say Something training with an anonymous reporting system through a mobile app, telephone hotline and website. Additional training for school district personnel and local law enforcement are required elements of this program.
“Prevent Suicide” expands on the core Say Something program to teach the warnings signs and risk factors specific to suicide. Training and resources are specifically tailored each for educators, parents, and students. Register on Sandy Hook Promise’s Learning Center and you’ll find “Prevent Suicide” under the Say Something program. You’ll also get access to our other trainings.
“Being A Trusted Adult” is a new one-hour interactive workshop that deepens the Say Something program. It helps educators, parents, and community leaders better help students who speak up about seeing warning signs of self-harm, violence, and victimization. Sign up for our Learning Center and you’ll find “Being A Trusted Adult” under the Say Something program, along with access to our other trainings.
