    Since September 2020, the Speak Up, Speak Out (SUSO) Resource Center has received more than 1,000 tips and helped deploy mental health resources and welfare checks to multiple students. SUSO offers a 24/7 threat reporting system, threat assessment consultation, critical incident response, and general school safety guidance.

    To add this 24/7 threat reporting system to your school, complete the following steps:

    1. Submit contact information: To be forwarded any tips submitted regarding your school, the contact information for one recipient from your school must be submitted to the threat reporting system. Submit information here: https://speakup.widoj.gov/update-school-contact-information

    2. Attend a webinar: Learn what SUSO is, what resources are available, how to access $500 to purchase promo materials, and a train-the-trainer course that reviews curriculum for elementary, middle, and high school students.
