A suicide prevention tool built just for schools
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
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
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

Monitor students' school issued Chromebooks and Windows devices
In today's digital age, it's vital to have a tool that provides insights into our students' online behavior. The Beacon alerts we have received have enabled us to find those children in need of extra attention and counseling which has helped us, and helped the students and their families. We can't afford not to take care of these kids.
