Sources of Strength

Sources of Strength is a suicide prevention program composed of Peer Leaders and Adult Advisors in the three High Schools: Newton, Alcovy, and Eastside. Sources of Strength raises awareness and creates resiliency in students by using Eight Protective Factors: Family Support, Positive Friends, Mentors, Healthy Activities, Generosity, Spirituality, Mental Health, and Medical Access. SoS is a tool for promoting positive school-wide attitudes about seeking help for problems, breaking codes of silence, and involving supportive resources and assistance for students in emotional crisis.

Vision: We believe that many strengths are more powerful than one, and our united goal is to activate and mobilize these strengths in ways that positively change individuals and communities
