United Way of Northern BC has been a consistent funder of the Crisis Prevention, Intervention and Information Centre for Northern BC because of the amazing work they do in helping our most vulnerable populations. With this in mind, we were extremely excited to have Sandra Boulianne and her team in Terrace for three days last week to provide G.R.A.S.P – Getting Real About Suicide Prevention training to our Terrace youth.
The Crisis Centre provides education workshops aimed at building suicide safer communities. Their training includes skills training, healthy coping, communication, peer support and education to prevent and respond to crisis and suicide
They collaborate with and support agencies, front line workers, social workers, first responders, education providers, industry and the general public to develop an approach to suicide prevention.
Sandra and her team will also be in Kitimat this May 26th to 28th to provide the same training to teens in the community.
