What is it?
Sources of Strength is a strength-based, comprehensive wellness program that focuses on suicide prevention but impacts other issues such as substance abuse and violence. See the strengths wheel at the top of the page.
The program is based on encouraging relational connections in social groups to change peer social norms about help seeking and encourages individuals to assess and develop strengths in their life.
Sources Leadership (a group of students and adults) will meet monthly to plan and execute a monthly message campaign. These campaigns will utilize different mediums and strategies designed to connect with as large an audience as possible. There will be public art installations, billboard and radio pushes, public events and concerts, opportunities for resource sharing/referrals… the Leadership will dream up and then execute these messages monthly. We will need lots of support in promoting all of this.
