Building Strength, Inspiring Hope is a collaborative five-year action plan that focuses on suicide prevention for all youth, with targeted actions for youth who are at the greatest risk of suicide. As the Alberta Youth Suicide Prevention Plan (2019-2024) outlines: it was designed to build strength and inspire hope by outlining evidence-informed actions that will build community capacity, provide supports and services focused on recovery and growth, and ultimately reduced youth suicide in the province.

The Plan was developed with extensive stakeholder feedback and engagement, including Elders, members of First Nations communities and Métis settlements, knowledge keepers, youth and families, individuals with lived experience, subject matter experts in the field of suicide prevention, along with service delivery organizations, community programs, and Provincial and Federal government partners.

PolicyWise for Children & Families (PolicyWise) is requesting applications to increase research partnerships to build a stronger evidence base that will inform youth suicide prevention practices and improve outcomes. Applicants must be Alberta-based researchers engaged in community-based research, specific to and aligned with the Building Strength, Inspiring Hope Action Plan.

Applications may focus on any stage of the research process, from development of the research team to conducting a community-based research project. Grants of up to $40,000 are available for a term of 12 months.
