Sources of Strength peer groups

  • Students from Risley International School


    Pueblo School District 60 schools utilizes “Sources of Strength” suicide prevention and peer counseling groups to engage with vulnerable students dealing with thoughts of self-harm and harming others. The program also addresses the role that exposure to violence, bullying and substance abuse play in contributing to thoughts of suicide and self-harm.

    “Sources of Strength” is one of the tools utilized as a result of threat assessments, which gauge the likelihood of a student harming themselves or others during emergency situations. 

    “Sources of Strength” has helped empower students by connecting them with their peers and caring adults to openly address their personal struggles through the power of connection, hope, help and strength.
