Youth Suicide Prevention

As part of the new provincial action plan on youth suicide prevention, RVS will be rolling out a range of evidence-based practices in the fall to complement and extend existing prevention efforts already taking place within the jurisdiction. The Learning Supports branch will be offering face-to-face and online training, based on a recently developed Suicidal Ideating Risk Assessment and intervention protocol, similar to the Non-Suicidal Self-Injury protocol that schools are already using. Mental Health First Aid Training and ASIST workshops also are a great resource. Schools are asked to display the attached poster in the interim as it includes valuable information such as important support/hotline numbers in case of emergency.
