The Pennsylvania Adult/Older Adult Suicide Prevention Coalition (PAOASPC) and the Pennsylvania Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative (PAYSPI) have merged to form a new organization called Prevent Suicide PA.  Prevent Suicide PA will address suicide prevention across the lifespan. The organization’s goal is to prevent suicide in Pennsylvania through education, training, awareness, reducing stigma, and involving those with lived experience (Loss and Attempt Survivors).  Prevent Suicide PA’s new website (www.PreventSuicidePA.org) was launched on September 10, 2017, World Suicide Prevention Day.  Check it out!  https://www.preventsuicidepa.org/



Prevent Suicide PA will hold it’s first “Suicide Awareness Day” at the State Capitol on Monday, October 16th from 9:00 AM  – 10:30 AM.  Please join Prevent Suicide PA and help to bring suicide prevention and mental wellness into the spotlight.  Speakers will include several legislators, mental health professionals, and attempt and loss Survivors (representing lived experience from all age groups). Display tables will provide organizations with an opportunity to share suicide prevention materials.

ALICE information

5 days ago

\\hpserver\dcampbell\Downloads\alice-logo.png

In partnership with the Weatherly Area Police Department, the Weatherly Area School District has adopted a new strategy for school lockdown known as ALICE.    ALICE is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate and is a more sophisticated and enhanced approach to school lockdowns.  The philosophy of ALICE is to use technology and information in a way so that staff and students can make informed decisions. In a crisis, this program recommends removing as many people as possible from the danger zone, and provides realistic training so that those involved in a crisis have a better chance of surviving.

Currently, our lockdown procedures call for staff to lock doors, move students to hidden areas of a classroom and to remain quiet until clearance is given.  From the tragic school events across the country, we have learned that this guidance will leave our staff and students more vulnerable in the event of an intruder.  ALICE represents a new way of thinking to enhance student safety during a critical incident.

It is our intention to train staff and students in this approach during the current school year.  In consultation with the Weatherly Area Police Department, we provided our first training to staff members on Friday September 29th.  During the next several weeks, the Weatherly Area Police will be assisting our classroom teachers in sharing this very important training with our students.

After all of our students have been trained in ALICE, the district will be having a practice drill.  All parents and guardians will be notified prior to the drill taking place that it will be occurring.  

If you would like to talk to your child about ALICE at home, please refer to one of the following age appropriate videos for further information.

ALICE is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.

* Alert - Get the word out that an armed intruder is present. Use plain and specific language to alert where, when, and how an incident is occurring.

* Lockdown - Barricade the room and silence all mobile devices. Prepare to evacuate or take counter measures if needed.

* Inform -Use clear and direct language to communicate the intruder's location.

* Counter - Apply skills to counter, distract, confuse, or gain control of an active intruder situation. Please remember that Counter is only used as the last resort.

* Evacuate - Reduce the number of potential targets for the intruder and improve the chances for all in case of any possible friendly fire from Police. Move to the safest rally point.
