Garrett Lee Smith Youth Suicide Prevention Toolkit
"Getting Started" toolkit. This toolkit provides you with resources and tools to assist you in creating your youth suicide project. This toolkit assumes its audience to be a community-wide collaborative of agencies and individuals working together to prevent suicide in their community. Suicide is a public health problem and requires a comprehensive prevention approach only possible by the cooperation of multiple stakeholders. However, given the youth focus of this prevention project the school system is given special attention. Whenever possible we have included materials that are school specific and materials that are community coalition specific.
For additional information about our Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative, contact Shel Gross, Director of Public Policy, at (608) 250-4368 or email@example.com.
