Description: Providing a continuum of mental health supports and services for our children and youth is a complex challenge requiring a shared responsibility and continual learning. Join us as we highlight two new resources, “Pathways to Hope: Best Practices to Suicide Prevention in Alberta Schools” which provides a synthesis of relevant and current research for developing a comprehensive school based suicide prevention and intervention strategy, and “Creating Pathways of Hope” which supports school authorities in creating and implementing action plans to promote life and prevent student suicide.
Audience: School leaders, school authority leaders, counselors, leaders in the community.
