About the Session

We are excited to share our recently developed planning tool, offering guidance in designing suicide prevention and life promotion plans that enhance existing mental health and crisis initiatives already in place, while comprehensively including national and provincial research and best practices. Designed to be used with jurisdictional teams including community partners, Creating Pathways of Hope will guide your working team through a design thinking process to support identification and action planning, leveraging the relationships built across school networks to enhance wellness for students and staff. Creating Pathways of Hope was developed through a grant from Alberta Children’s Services. Participants will learn of tools within the newly released Creating Pathways of Hope to use when collaborating with community and provincial agencies in support of suicide prevention and life promoting cultures.
Participants will explore how this resource will help ensure that all students and staff are provided with a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging as part of a life promoting culture.


This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
