Sources of Strength

Sources of Strength: A best practice youth suicide prevention project designed to harness the power of peer social networks to change unhealthy norms and culture, ultimately preventing suicide, bullying, and substance abuse.  The mission of Sources of Strength is to prevent suicide by increasing help seeking behaviors and promoting connections between peers and caring adults.  Sources of Strength moves beyond a singular focus on risk factors by utilizing an upstream approach for youth suicide prevention.  This upstream model strengthens multiple sources of support (protective factors) around young individuals so that when times get hard they have strengths to rely on. 

Meets: Bi-Weekly
