CRISIS Prevention Education

We are very excited to offer free, power-based personal violence prevention and suicide prevention. Kids today face many challenges- at home and at school. Our goal is to equip students with the knowledge and tools they need to lead healthy and safe lives. We research the best programs available, and feel that we have found a well-rounded selection of curricula to help prevent power-based personal violence and suicide at your school. Due to high demand, our educators can work with only one grade per curriculum.

For grades K-2, we offer a three-session, evidence-based program called Wise Owl Bully Stopper Kit. During these half hour sessions, students will learn to identify bullying behaviors, how to respond to bullying, and how to help others who are being bullied. In addition to watching age appropriate videos, kids will practice standing up to bullies and being empowered bystanders. Best for 2nd grade.

For grades 3-5, we offer a four-session, evidence based program call the Bully Proof Kit. During these half our sessions, students learn to identify “invisible” bullying behaviors, what you can do if you think you’ve been a bully, how to respond to bullying, and how to be an empowered bystander. This curriculum features videos, worksheets, and an opportunity to role play different bullying scenarios. Best for 5th grade.

For Grades 6-8, we offer a multi-session, evidence based program about Cyber-Bullying. During these sessions, students will learn to identify cyber bullying, the consequences of cyber bullying, and how to respond to cyber bullying.  Best for 6th grade.

For grades 7-10: we offer a four-session, evidence based Healthy Relationships curriculum, which focuses on the prevention of dating abuse and sexual violence. This curriculum address respect in all relationships, identifying physical and emotional red flags and dating abuse, gender roles, and sexual violence in the context of teenage dating relationships with an emphasis on preventing abusive behaviors. Students are given an opportunity to identify and implement their own solutions to unhealthy scenarios. This curriculum helps satisfy the Mental and Emotional Health component of the Alabama Health Education standards. Best for 8th or 9th grade.

For Grades 6-12: The Lifelines Curriculum is a comprehensive, whole-school suicide prevention curriculum. This curriculum addresses the whole school community by providing suicide awareness resources for school administrators, faculty and staff members, parents and caregivers, and students. For your students, we will focus on presenting valuable information regarding suicide and the role of students in suicide prevention. Staff and parent workshops are also available. This curriculum helps satisfy the Mental and Emotional Health component of the Alabama Health Education standards. Best for 7th, 8th, or 9th grade.
