Suicide Prevention: Katy ISD is here for you
Forum Image
Yesterday was World Suicide Prevention Day. As a District and community, Katy ISD is here for YOU. You are not alone. Share these resources with a friend, and if you or someone you know has had thoughts of harming themselves, please seek help. #KatyStrong
1. SpeakUp App:
When students are victimized or have knowledge of safety issues, fear or confusion may discourage them from telling school personnel or a police officer. The Katy Independent School District is encouraging students, parents and community members to anonymously report tips or information about potential safety threats through the District's new SpeakUP reporting mobile application. This new app is one of many ways the District is fostering engagement and developing customized resources that adapt to the needs of a growing school district with changing demographics.
SpeakUP is an anonymous reporting system that enables Katy ISD students, parents, and community members to anonymously submit safety and well-being tips to help prevent school related incidents that could cause harm to others.
Tips may include bullying, weapons, suicide or self-harm, illicit drug use, inappropriate relationships, violence, and other concerns for safety and well-being. In addition to submitting anonymous and secure tips, users can upload video and photo evidence. All tips are thoroughly investigated by campus personnel, police and/or a crisis management team.
What users can do with this app:
*Anonymously submit a tip to Katy ISD police, Counseling Services, and campus/district administration concerning school, district or student safety
*Attach video or photo evidence that supports your tip
*Select from over 40 different tip categories
*Review updates on the tip that you submitted
How do I submit a tip?
Fill out the form below.
Download the SpeakUP app on your mobile or other smart device. Download through Google Play Store or iTunes App Store to install the app.
2. American Foundation for Suicide Prevention:
3. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: The Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.

Life saving information....thank you. This can help save someone's life. It is so difficult because usually there are no warning signs and it is sure a difficult topic to discuss or bring up.
