CMHA’s Signals of Suicide Program
Presented to Grade 9 Students
The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) will be presenting a youth suicide prevention program entitled ‘Signals of Suicide’ (SOS) to Grade 9 students on December 15th. Using interactive discussions and a short video, the program safely explores the topic of suicide with youth, outlining warning signs for suicide and ways to seek help for themselves and their peers when they are in distress or crisis. This program is offered to all Grade 9 students across PEI and is part of the Grade 8-9 Health Curriculum.
Les Wagner, CMHA’s Prince County’s Regional Director, is a trained facilitator and will present the program to students. If you have questions or would like more information about the SOS program, please contact your School Counsellor or Mr. Wagner at 436-7399.
