Sources of Strength got its start as a grassroots program in 1998. Since that time Sources of Strength has become a national model in suicide prevention as one of the most rigorously researched programs in the country. Sources of Strength takes an innovative, upstream approach to prevention by focusing on strengths, resiliency and connectedness rather than risk factors, warning signs and stories of trauma.
At Fairview High School, students are nominated by teachers and current student leaders to be trained once or twice per year. Peer Leaders then meet as a club every other week to educate peers, build strength and resiliency in peers, and contribute to the overall positive school climate at FHS.
