Peer-to-Peer Suicide Prevention Grants

Grant Overview and Purpose of the Funding

The Department of Public Instruction’s Student Services/Prevention and Wellness Team is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Peer-to-Peer Suicide Prevention Grant Competition. With a focus on training Wisconsin students to recognize the signs of suicide shown by fellow students, peer-to-peer programs use messages of hope, health, and strength to develop peer leaders and resources for students who may be struggling.

Any school at which pupils attend high school grades is eligible for this grant. Recipients of a grant under this program may use the grant funds to support an existing peer-to-peer suicide prevention program or implement a new peer-to-peer suicide prevention program. The amount of each individual grant award may not exceed $1,000.

The Peer-to-Peer Suicide Prevention Grants are due to DPI on Friday, October 7 at 4:30 p.m.
