Hospitalization? - October 18th 2009, 06:01 PM

If your hospitalized for suicide prevention, what would/could the school do if you missed too many days because of it?

I missed more days than I was suppose to but the resource officer pulled strings and got it so none of the days counted against me.

If you were to be hospitalized, I think your main concern should be getting yourself healthy.

But as for school, the hospital program should have some sort of person in charge of making sure your school excuses you from school. My advice to you would be to talk to your guidance counselor at school (if you have one) because they can be really understanding and helpful. Also, I would advise you to try and get some school work ahead of time that you will miss so you can work on it a little at a time, so you won't be too overwhelmed. You SHOULD have as many days to make up your school work as you have missed. So if you miss 5 days of school, you should have 5 days to make up and get your school work turned in.

Hope this helped! Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions. Take care!

When I was there a week ago, I was put on home bound and the teacher at the hospital got my assignments from school and we had 2 hours a day for school work. If you have any other questions about the hospital feel free to P.M me.

Three of the four hospitals I was in had their own school, with qualified teachers and you could take exams there and stuff. They liased with my other school to try to see what work I would need to do and helped me with it.
It obviously depends on the hospital though, most schools are pretty supportive.

most places will have some sort of education programme set up, and often have their own school or at least a school room with trained teachers. i'm sure your school will be more worried about making sure you're ok than you having a bad attendance because of it. take care. x

If you're worried about having to repeat a year because of absences, maybe you should talk to a guidance counsellor about what it would take to keep that from happening.
