LDSB Suicide Response Protocol 

LDSB has a suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention protocol that is well-understood by staff. This protocol emphasizes the importance of upstream life promotion approaches and a vision for student well-being and flourishing. Capacity-building in suicide awareness ensures a tightly woven safety net so that when students reach out for help, implicitly or explicitly, adults at school know how best to respond.
