The root causes of youth suicide are systemic and collective rather than individual. As such, The Sky Center’s Toolkit for Wellbeing is a model that offers systemic interventions developed from research detailing the risk and protective factors for youth suicide. It investigates the intersections of trauma-sensitive practices, resiliency, and community health. The Toolkit offers six key strategies with related practices: social connection, self-regulation, mindful awareness, hope, physiological wellbeing, and nature. Day-long workshops, curricula, and staff and student trainings are implemented in collaboration with the Santa Fe Public Schools and community partners. We provide on-going facilitation of consultation circles for sustainability as well, as often as deemed fit by contracted organizations.
