Fulcrum Funds Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative

September 01, 2022

Catholic high school students are stepping up to help save lives. 

Archbishop Murphy High School, Everett and Pope John Paul II High School, Lacey are the first high schools in the archdiocese to partner with the Office for Catholic Schools (OCS) and the Office of Pastoral Care and Outreach in the Catholic Lifesaver Corps. This program teaches high school students to train their peers about suicide awareness and prevention.  

A Fulcrum grant funded the program, providing $38,500 to help OCS begin this important work. In the coming year, Catholic Lifesaver Corps participants will share what they’ve learned and teach workshops at their schools and parishes about suicide prevention.
