The School-based Suicidal Ideation Response Protocol committee was made up of over 20 healthcare professionals, school-based mental health professionals, and community agency representatives.

This collaborative brought together those with many years of clinical experience within school settings along with those who deal with suicide assessment and treatment in the community and hospital settings.  The common goal of this committee was to create an evidence-informed protocol with supporting documents to build mental health capacity in all school settings kindergarten to Grade 12.
