In response to an increase in teen suicides in Walla Walla and surrounding areas, the Sources of Strength program was implemented at two local high schools. Supported by a suicide prevention grant from DBHR, within 30 days and with the help of coalition members and the broader community, four days of training and a community night was held.
"Implementing Sources of Strength gives hope, help and strength to a community that needs to continue to talk about suicide prevention." stated Peggy Needham, CPWI Coalition Coordinator in Walla Walla.
