Review for Northwest Family Services, Portland, OR, USA
I am a public middle school educator who welcomed experts from NW Family Services into my classroom to educate eighth graders about suicide prevention. The teachers were outstanding. The curriculum was comprehensive and appropriate to the age group. They provided empowering information that allowed students to recognize the signs and symptoms of depression, and how to respond. My students were provided with a procedure that emotionally supported them in the event that the curriculum triggered difficult personal feelings. The presenters' knowledge of pedagogy and best teaching practices was very evident, as they kept the students focused and interactive. I am ready to advocate again and again for this tremendously valuable program. I am certain it reached many students directly, and likely will save a life/lives indirectly. Thank you!
