Being prepared to act in the event of a suicide: Postvention program
Seguin, M., Roy, F., & Boilar, T.
This new postvention program is built on the community’s ability to respond to post-suicide difficulties, with a view to conveying a sense of security and competence in light of the situation. Though designed primarily for youth, the program is not youth-specific. It can be adapted to various environments: the secondary and postsecondary education systems, workplaces, and living environments (e.g., group homes, and communities). This intervention program is multimodal, meaning that it is deployed through multiple, simultaneous actions. It sets out a sequential plan for interventions that act on the impacts of a suicide and address both individuals and the community at large.
