Bellevue Schools Foundation Signs of Suicide (SOS)

Register Now! 

Deborah Kraft, the Director of K-12 Counseling for the Bellevue School District, will be leading a discussion on the Bellevue School District’s new Signs of Suicide (SOS) program. This suicide prevention program is being implemented in all of Bellevue’s public secondary schools. Deborah will be joined by a panel that includes program staff and Middle and High School counselors. They will be discussing how the program works, how staff are trained to implement it and how it fits into the existing mental health unit.  The presenters will explain the use of universal screeners and how they are used in BSD schools in grade 10. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer period.

Deborah has a Masters in Counseling from Seattle University and a Bachelor of Science in Numerical Analysis from the University of Washington.   Additionally, she has her Principal Certification.  She worked as a counselor for over 19 years at Mercer Island High School.  She taught mathematics at Lakeside School in Seattle for 8 years.  She has been a college counselor at both Mercer Island High School and Lakeside School.  She also taught Mathematics in high schools in California and Florida.
