PEI Kids > What You Need to Know > Educators


Educators may be the first to notice that a child may be abused or distressed. It is important to know what behaviors to look for in children and how to respond.classroom

PEI Kids provides training on child assault, physical and sexual abuse, bullying, and cyber safety to teachers, parents, and school administrators. We work more than 65 public, private and charter schools annually throughout Mercer County to help keep our children safe. For more information, please contact Erika Hillman at or call PEI Kids.

An alarming statistic: The suicide rate for youth aged 10–14 nearly tripled from 2007 to 2017.  The Model School District Policy on Suicide Prevention  gives educators and school administrators clear guidance on how to implement suicide prevention, intervention, and post-vention policies in their schools and districts. The updated research-based model is easily adaptable for schools serving K through 12th-grade students.
