A Life Saved

“A Life Saved” is the true story of an intervention conducted by three eighth grade boys in Maine after participating in the Lifelines student lessons.

The student lessons were the last piece of the comprehensive suicide prevention program adopted by Woolwich Elementary School that included adopting protocols, negotiating a Memorandum of Understanding with the local crisis agency, Gatekeeper training for selected school staff, followed by awareness sessions for all school personnel and then teacher training to deliver the four lesson that constitute the Lifelines student lessons.

Gatekeeper and Lifelines training are offered regionally throughout the school year.
