Youth Suicide Prevention Project launching early 2023
Through the Neutral Hills Learning Centre and with help from the Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) programs run within Consort, Coronation and Castor we were approved for a grant to launch a Youth Suicide Prevention Program within the 3C's in 2023.
"The Government of Alberta is committed to preventing youth suicide and improving the health and well-being of young people. Building Strength, Inspiring Hope: A Provincial Action Plan for Youth Suicide Prevention 2019 to 2024 (the Plan) is a provincial plan to reduce the rate of youth suicide and suicide attempts in Alberta. The Plan’s vision is: An Alberta where youth feel they are heard, supported and valued and we all actively work together to prevent youth suicide."

The 2-year plan will help build relationships and initiate a conversation around suicide in rural communities. The grant will provide funds to provide Gatekeeper training across the 3C's for youth, community members, front-line workers, teachers, parents and caregivers.
