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 at S.I.S. on May 20th and May 26th. Using interactive discussions and a short video, the 80 minute 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 presented to all Grade 9 students across PEI and is part of the Grade 8-9 Health Curriculum.
