USask launches suicide prevention strategy

The University of Saskatchewan (USask) has launched a suicide prevention strategy in order to help postsecondary students in the province. The strategy includes a toolkit and awareness campaign, and the materials will be shared with other institutions with the support of Healthy Campus Saskatchewan. “Suicide in the post-secondary student population is a clear global, national, and regional issue,” said Jay Wilson, interim vice-provost of Teaching, Learning, and Student Experience at USask. “Student deaths by suicide have touched our communities, and they have touched our campus. The components of the suicide prevention strategy will be a lifesaving tool.” USask Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
