Crisis Intervention in School CommunitiesWhat happens when a school experiences a teen suicide in the school bathroom at 9:22 am on a Monday? You don’t think it will happen to you because you think all is OK in your nice quaint community, and I hope it is. On this particular day in a small beautiful community southwest of San Antonio, TX – Devine High School it started like any ordinary day. Until second period – two girls coming running in to the office screaming . . . Lives are forever changed in a heartbeat! A week later, this community brought Jeff Yalden to town for a 16-17 hour day. Students, Teachers, Parents and Community, and then the high school basketball game. This is what Jeff does. He touches hearts . . . he changes lives. One person. One community at a time. Jeff Yalden is the go-to person for Teen Mental Health and Teen Suicide Prevention.

Administrators are not given a certificate on how to deal with the loss of a student by suicide or accidental death
Jeff teaches administrators and school counselors how to lead their student and staff through the loss of one of their own. Moving forward after a suicide can be very tricky. This is why many communities have reached out to Jeff Yalden for help in making sense to the students and helping the staff through the grieving process.
A small midwestern town. 34 high school students. Imagine when it’s the niece of the high school principal?
Jeff spent a full day in this community with students, staff, parents, including the parents of this young lady who was said by students and staff to be the most popular and well liked student in the school.
You don’t think it will happen in your community, but when it does, are you prepared to lead and be present knowing what to do and how to do it. Do you know what to say and how to say it? Do you know what the students and staff want when they’re looking to you for answers to the most difficult questions at one of the most defining moments of their lives?
