    • Empowers teens to Be A Link!® for suicide prevention and how to Be A Leader! in community efforts. Including peer leaders in cross-age training is an effective method to educate youth. This increases local capacity and sustainability for on-going training and community readiness. Communities have found that having youth trainers validates the importance of the topic among their peers, increases participation and promotes help seeking actions.
    • Youth express desire to be more involved with suicide prevention efforts in their communities; to be more than just a recipient of help, they want to help and be part of the solution.
