Suicide Prevention, Intervention, Postvention (Adi's Act)

Components of Suicide Prevention Plans - Adi's Act_pages-to-jpg-0001.jpg
If you or someone you know is struggling or in crisis, help is available. Call or text 988, or chat at The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is available 24/7 and offers compassionate care and support for anyone experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm, substance use, or any other kind of behavioral health crisis. You can also dial 988 if you are worried about a loved one who may need crisis support.

Senate Bill 52 (SB 52), also known as Adi’s Act (ORS 339.343; OAR 581-022-2510), requires each school district school board to adopt a policy requiring a Student Suicide Prevention plan. These plans must be made available annually to students and the school district community and be posted on the district's website, if applicable. 

District suicide prevention plans that are compliant with state requirements provide procedural planning in the areas of prevention, intervention, and postvention, have equity and racial equity centered supports, and include a staff training process that outlines when and how students and families will be referred to appropriate mental health and crisis services. 

The administrative rule (OAR 581-022-2510) implementing Adi's Act (ORS 339.343) further requires school districts to ensure supports for all students including LGBTQ2SIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/non-binary, queer/questioning, twospirit, intersex, asexual, and the myriad other way to describe gender identities and sexual orientations) youth, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) and tribal communities/members/students, youth in out-of-home settings, youth with disabilities, as well as historically and currently underserved youth. OAR 581-022-2510 is part of the Division 22 Standards for Public Elementary and Secondary Schools. School district superintendents are required to report their compliance annually. 

Resources and support for districts and schools are available through their regional School Safety and Prevention Specialist.
