12.25 Sources of Strength: Shifting Teen Social Norms to Counter Risk for Suicide webinar Thursday, February 24, 2011, 3-4:30 p.m ET.
Sources of Strength is the first suicide prevention program involving peer leaders to enhance protective factors associated with reducing suicide at the school population level. This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the Sources of Strength program from the professionals who developed it and others who evaluated it. Findings in a just-published evaluation of the program in the Sep. 2010 American Journal of Public Health show that this intervention can modify a set of norms across the full school population that are conceptually and empirically linked to reduced suicidal behavior.
