Suicide Prevention


In 2011 statistics indicate that 10% of Johnson County high school males and 13.6% of females seriously considered attempting suicide and 6% of those Johnson County high school males and 5.7% of females attempted suicide at least once. With the tragic consequences of a potential student suicide in mind, Spring Hill High School is committed to suicide awareness, education and prevention. As stated in the district's Suicide Prevention/Intervention Manual (2013) 'despite our best efforts of prevention, we will at times be faced with the need for intervention.' As we treasure all our students and stakeholders, it is critical that we are aware of the warning signs, indicators of risk, how to report concerns and the process which is in place to help students.
