Facilitator(s): Sandra L. Jacques, Esq., LL.M., LEGAL ONE Supervisor of Legal Research & Content Development, and 

Rebecca Gold, LEGAL ONE Consultant, NJPSA Assistant Director of Retirement and Benefit Services, Interim Assistant SuperintendentPrinceton Public Schools 

 Centered on issues concerning student and staff mental health needs, including presentations focused on suicidal ideation, the training is provided by legal staff in conjunction with subject matter experts with extensive experience addressing suicide and mental health issues in school districts. The sessions provide necessary overviews of legal requirements, as well as staff training focused on recognizing and addressing these mental health issues. The sessions can also focus on reviewing and assessing district policies and procedures to amend them or to develop procedures and protocols to implement the policies. The sessions can include time for discussion of scenarios and issues in order to assist staff in recognizing and addressing these issues. The training also provides an opportunity for “training the trainers,” as the materials can then be used by district staff to train other staff with respect to the subject matter.
