  • How do I renew my license?

    Visit our online shop and click on the license you'd like to renew. From the product page, use the 'Year' dropdown menu to select either 'First Year' (for new purchases) or 'Renewal,' and then click 'Add to Cart.'

Getting Started
  • What happens after I purchase?

    You will receive a purchase confirmation email from info@mindwise.org. The person you listed as an 'implementer' at the time of purchase will receive an email with your school's assigned username and a link to set your school's password from no-reply@sossignsofsuicide.org. If you listed yourself as the implementer, you will receive both emails. If you don’t receive them, please check your spam folder.

    Once your school's implementer has setup a password, they should share the username and password with any staff implementing the program in your school.

  • Is there software to download or an app to install?

    No, the program is web-hosted and does not require any type of downloading or installation.

  • Who do I contact for technical or billing support?

    Email info@mindwise.org for technical and billing support and someone will respond within 1-3 business days

Implementation
  • The SOS portal looks different.

    We updated the look of the SOS portal in April 2023 to make it easier to use. You can head to this page to learn all about the updates.

    Please note that all client passwords were changed in April 2023. If you have not already reset your password, please click here and then click "Reset your school's password". This is a one-time security requirement and was a necessary part of our platform update.

  • What is my school's username and password?

    Each school shares one username assigned by MindWise. At the time of purchase, your school's lead implementer received an email with the assigned username. The lead implementer sets a password to be shared among staff delivering SOS to students at your school.

    • If you do not know your school's username and password, reach out to your school's lead implementer.

    • If you do not know who your school's lead implementer is or if the person in that role has changed, email info@mindwise.org for updated information.

  • How many user emails can be associated with a license?

    The program is connected to one email address per campus. However, a school-based username and password is shared among implementing staff. 

  • I need help logging in or with my password.

    Help, I can't access my SOS Portal. 

    1. Please make sure that you are on the correct website: sossignsofsuicide.org.

    2. Next, make sure that you are using your school's username, which was assigned to your school's lead implementer at the time of purchase. If you are the lead implementer and cannot remember your school's password, you can set a new password using the "Reset your school's password" link at the bottom of the login page.

*Note: all client passwords were changed in April 2023 as a one-time security requirement. Your password from previous school years will no longer work. You can reset your school's password here.

How do I reset my school's password?

If you are your school's lead implementer, you can change your school's password at any time using the "Reset your school's password" link at the bottom of the login page. Enter your school's username or your email address into the field and click "Get new school password". You will receive a one-time password reset link in your email. Be sure to provide the new password to any additional implementers in your school.

*Note: the lead implementer is the only person who can complete the password reset process. If you are the lead implementer and you are unable to reset the password, please email us at info@mindwise.org.

 

Every time I try to log in, it makes me reset my password.

It’s likely you’re using the link in your original setup email (sent from no-reply@sossignsofsuicide.org) each time you access the program. Instead, please go to sossignsofsuicide.org and use the username provided in your email and the most recent password you set to log in. 

I'm trying to log in, but it says 'Error: The username is not registered on this site. If you are unsure of your username, try your email address instead.'

You will need to use the username provided to your school's lead implementer in your original setup email (sent from no-reply@sossignsofsuicide.org).

  •  I haven’t gotten any emails from the SOS portal.

    Check with your spam/junk mail folder or filter. We recommend liaising with your IT department to add “@mindwise.org” and "@sossignsofsuicide.org" to your Safe Senders list to ensure that emails from us always make it to your inbox.

  •  There are multiple people on our team. Can we all access the SOS portal?

    Yes, you will all share the one provided username and the password you created. Make sure to set a password that you are comfortable sharing with others. 

  •  How do we change the email associated with our account?

    You will need to contact the SOS Team to make this change. Email us at info@mindwise.org or call us at 781-239-0071.

  •  How can parents and caregivers at my school access the SOS parent page?

    As of July 2019, we’ve completely unlocked the parent page to make it easier than ever for parents and caregivers to find out more about the program and get engaged in your school’s suicide prevention efforts. To access the page, parents and caregivers can go to https://www.mindwise.org/parents/.

General
  • Which grades are the best grades to pilot with?

    There is no best grade. Consider your school's suicide prevention goals. SOS Signs of Suicide contains varied content appropriate for 6th-12th graders.

  • Can we do SOS Signs of Suicide in an assembly style?

    No, SOS Signs of Suicide is designed to be delivered in a classroom setting with group discussion. The videos serve as conversation starters for classroom discussion and student support.

  • What is the screener exactly and what is it not?

    SOS Signs of Suicide encourages students to self-screen for depression and suicide risk as part of the classroom lesson. Through screening, students learn about signs of depression and suicide and reflect on whether they are experiencing these symptoms. Students self-score the screening forms and facilitators review help-seeking guidance for each score. This way students are empowered with their own health information and encouraged to seek help when they notice signs in themselves or a friend.

  • Who is best to implement SOS Signs of Suicide?

    Any trusted adult can implement SOS Signs of Suicide. General education teachers, school-based mental health staff, and community youth leaders are a few of the professions implementing SOS across the country.
