Suicide Prevention Planning
The Suicide Prevention Intervention and Postvention (PIP) Initiative for BC is co-hosted by the Crisis Centre. In Fall 2009, we completed the development of a Framework and Planning Template, a key resource and planning tool to help support strategic and program planning for suicide in BC.
Research evidence, practice evidence and stakeholder engagement were used to determine what works in addressing suicide and how it might be applied in local, regional and provincial contexts. This project has led to defining 6 priority areas and actions for suicide prevention, intervention and postvention in BC.
This project has been funded by BC Mental Health and Addictions Services (an agency of the Provincial Health Services Authority); the BC Ministry for Children and Family Development; and the Fraser Health Authority.
