Suicide Prevention

Combine advanced AI technology with Student Safety Specialists to help in the prevention of student suicide and self-harm.

Spot the warning signs to prevent suicide and self-harm

Suicide is the #2 cause of death for young people ages 10-14. With students spending so much time online, many warning signs of suicide or depression can be found in their online activity—searches, posts, notes, comments, visits, and views.  

Together, we can help aide in K-12 suicide prevention efforts. Lightspeed Alert™ uses advanced AI and machine learning to assist in student suicide prevention by monitoring student activity across all sites, analyze intent, and send real-time alerts to designated personnel when a student is at risk so schools can intervene before a tragedy occurs. 

Advanced AI sees things you can’t

With Lightspeed Alert on school-owned devices, you get the power of our patented device-level filtering agents to see everything: what the students search, what they type in online docs, what they comment on social media, what they discuss in chat applications, and what sites they visit and are blocked fromwhether they’re on- or off-campus. Lightspeed solutions provide accurate monitoring that can save a life by flagging concerning online behavior.  

Our advanced machine learning technology analyzes all online activity to identify students at risk of self-harm or suicide (and differentiate them from students doing research, such as an assignment on To Kill a Mockingbird). Real-time alerts on at-risk students provides you with all the details and screenshots you need to understand the risk and provide appropriate support.

Human review

Lightspeed Alert goes beyond a student monitoring software with 24/7/365 Human Monitoring by trained, in-houseStudent Safety Specialists at Lightspeed Systems 

We understand schools and districts don’t have the time or resources to continuously monitor their alert systems; Lightspeed Systems has a global team—trained in conjunction with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Safe and Sound Schools—to decipher between false positive alert notifications and real, imminent threats. When threats are identified, we’ll immediately contact school officials, and/or law enforcement where appropriate, for intervention.

Understand the risk

Understanding the mindset of an individual student requires more than one alert. That’s why Lightspeed Alert provides a detailed view of activity before and after the alert to determine intent and mindset of students at risk.  

Build a community focused on safety

Student safety and suicide prevention is a school-wide effort. With Lightspeed Alert, you can designate district administrators, like safety resource officers, principals, counselors, or teachers, to receive alerts for their schools or groups to get the right information in the right hands, at the right time.
