Suicide Prevention Family Resources
The Nampa School District recognizes that suicide is a leading cause of death among youth. We believe taking preventative steps is essential in helping our students reach out for help. We have created this page as a resource for parents, students, and teachers. If you are in despair, please reach out by calling the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline at 208-398-HELP(4357). Many people have found that talking helps to alleviate painful suicidal thoughts and feelings.
The Nampa School District has school counselors, psychologists, and social workers available at every school site. They have been trained to assess suicidal ideation and respond appropriately to the level of threat identified. It is the top priority of our school-based mental health experts to ensure the safety of the students in our school district. Please use our staff as resources, in addition to the information provided on this website.
