Skills for Safer Living (SfSL) is a four-week support group program for youth ages 12-24 who have suicide ideation and their caregivers. This program is being offered at no cost and is funded by the Government of Alberta and FCSS Calgary.

The group meets once a week for a 90-minute session for four weeks. In the sessions, youth learn to build skills and capacity to help keep themselves safe. Caregivers meet in a group that takes place at the same time. In addition to building capacity in youth, the program builds the same knowledge in families/caregivers. It intends to foster a feeling of support from and among caregivers in a situation that is scary, but not hopeless.
