What to do after a suicide - finding support - making sense of it all - putting the pieces together; and linking with supports and services on the net and in the community.
The Youth Suicide Prevention Information Kit, developed in conjunction with the Departments of Health and Education and the Ministerial Council for Suicide Prevention, has been distributed widely in the community and continues to be in high demand. The Kit is designed to assist professionals working with young people, for young people themselves and for the community at large. It is a positive step towards educating people about this complex social issue.
