Adolescent Suicide & Depression Prevention Program
Where To Next is a free, 1 to 4 session educational program for youths, teachers and parents on how to deal with depression and suicide in youngsters. The program also deals with coping with suicide after someone close to us takes their life. Where To Next is designed to address the unique needs of adolescents (though we do have variations for older age groups). As their minds are developing and generally interpret their lives differently than those over the age of 18, we have designed the program to reach them based on a more emotional level. This program is delivered by seminar and workshop and uses the aid of our educational material and documentaries during unique interactive sessions with the target audience.
