BYTE - Empowering Youth – Whitehorse, YT

This organization will use Bell’s support to ramp up its suicide awareness initiative by offering safeTALK certification training to youth aged 15-24 in up to 4 Northern communities. With this training, they will be better able to identify those in their community who may be at risk and asking for help and better able to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to community resources for further help.
