To reduce suicide & self-injury & their impact on offenders, staff & significant others, a comprehensive approach for the assessment, prevention, intervention, treatment, support, evaluation, research & training of staff is being developed by the Correctional Service of Canada. This article lists the specific activities which will be undertaken.
