Assessment and Planning Tool Kit for Suicide Prevention in First Nations Communities

This Assessment and Planning Tool Kit for Suicide Prevention in First Nations communities has been developed to help individuals and groups interested in addressing the issue of suicide in their communities. It is a framework to guide First Nations in assessing and planning a suicide prevention plan. Communities are encouraged to adapt the tool to meet their own needs. The tool kit also provides information and research on suicide prevention to increase awareness and encourage discussion.
 
This tool kit draws upon the 2003 report of the Advisory Group on Suicide Prevention (SPAG) called Acting on What we Know: Preventing Youth Suicide in First Nations.
 
It was developed in response to the recommendations of the Suicide Prevention Advisory Group (SPAG)
