Mandatory Reporting Protocol for Suicide/Suicide Attempts

The New Jersey Department of Children and Families has now made available a mechanism for relevant professionals delineated in the protocol to statistically report in real-time non-identifying demographic information regarding a student or youth who has either attempted or completed suicide. To view the “Youth Suicide Reporting Form” and the “Protocol for Reporting Youth Suicide Attempt or Completion”, please click on the link  http://www.nj.gov/dcf/adolescent/prevention/.

Please be advised that in accordance with NJ Statute 30:9A-24 mandatory reporting applies to teachers and other professionals to the DCF.
