About the Texas Advancing Suicide Safer Schools Roadmap™

The Texas Advancing Suicide Safer Schools Roadmap is built upon best practices, which are constantly evolving.  We do our best to provide the most accurate information, but we do not guarantee using the Roadmap will prevent a suicide death or attempt in your district or necessarily meet specific rules or regulations your district is required to follow. 
In addition, it is important to note: 
  • Always check with your District's administration, legal team, other Safe and Supportive Schools team members and Texas Education Agency for guidance to ensure compliance with state rules and regulations. 
  • Please note: The Roadmap contained prolonged discussion about topics related to suicide, mental health and trauma.  If you have concerns about using this material, please contact your supervisor for additional guidance. 
  • Contact your mental health professional or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255 for support if you or someone you know is struggling. Call 9-1-1 or your Mobile Crisis Outreach Team for immediate crisis care
