Educators

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

PEI Kids provides training on child assault and abuse, as well as bullying and cyber safety, to teachers, parents, and school administrators. Last year, we worked with 65 public, private and charter schools throughout Mercer County to help keep our children safe. For more information, please contact Erika Hillman at ehillman@peikids.org 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 newly updated research-based model is easily adaptable for schools serving students in Kindergarten through the 12th grade.
