District Implements “Sources of Strength”

Post Falls School District has recently added “Sources of Strength” trainings for students and staff in an effort to further prevent suicide and enhance anti-bullying efforts. This program trains students to provide assistance to others regarding what resources are available to promote messages of health, hope and strength.  160 students were trained to work with other students on how to enhance their emotional well-being. Each month, student-led activities are planned to promote a sense of community.  These activities also remind students that there are trusted adults and students who they can lean on in times of stress. At Post Falls High School, Sources of Strength complements the existing LINK Crew mentoring program and Friends of Rachel Club (FOR Club). 

(Click here for a short video regarding the “Sources of Strength” program.)

 “Sources of Strength” is one of many district programs designed to enhance school culture and create a safe, caring environment.  Other programs include the following:  Question-Persuade-Refer (QPR) suicide prevention training for all staff, character education, Second Step kindness lessons, and many more.  Post Falls School District staff is trained to look for signs that a child is in distress and refer them to the appropriate resources. We partner with local community agencies such as Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN), Post Falls Police, Panhandle Health, Children’s Mental Health and more to ensure our students have access to a variety of support systems.
