Discover which students are silently suffering,
based on their online activity and behavior

Beacon proactively delivers warning
signs from all online activity

Beacon is unique in that it works across all of the content your students are creating, searching for and consuming online. This includes search engines, social media, email, web apps and more.

Make more informed
decisions, faster

Beacon helps you understand the context surrounding an event by categorizing the student’s activity into phases. This reduces
false positives and helps you determine the best course of action.

Designed alongside
mental health experts

Beacon was designed with the guidance of leading experts in mental health to ensure that it fits seamlessly into your school or district's suicide prevention program.

How it works

01

Monitors students' school issued Chromebooks

02

Creates an alert of concerning activity

03

Notifies the right people, including staff, parents, and students

04

Ensures action is visible and trackable

Beacon looks for online student activity that is indicative of suicide ideation and self-harm.

When at-risk behavior is detected, Beacon packages insights and creates an alert with specific details about the activity.

Beacon notifies staff and escalates alerts until action is taken. Parents can be alerted after-hours, and the student can be messaged directly with critical resources.

Beacon helps educators track activity relating to each alert, including what actions were taken and what needs to happen next.
