The Skills for Safer Living program is a combination of a twenty-week skills-based group and a peer support group for individuals with recurring thoughts and behaviours about suicide. The group process and content has been derived from innovative work that has developed over the last ten years at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. The Skills for Safer Living Group itself runs for twenty weeks and provides group participants the opportunity to develop specific strategies and skills to identify, interrupt, and change their behaviour about suicide.
At the conclusion of the twenty-week skills group, participants will be invited to attend an ongoing peer support group that provides participants the opportunity to practice and refresh the skills they have learned.
