Be Safe AppThe Be Safe App was originally developed in London, Ontario to support young people (ages 14 -24) during a crisis and link to local resources.  The App features a personal safety plan, including medical and personal information and coping strategies. A paper version is also available as a pocket guide.

Our inaugural Lunch and Learn series will be led by keynote speakers from mindyourmind to preview the Be Safe App on March 25th, 10:30am-1pm.  mindyourmind, a program of Family Service Thames Valley, is an active youth partner in the development of the App. The Be Safe App, with links to Hastings-Prince Edward resources, will be available for download in late April or early May 2015.  The two-hour Preview of the Be Safe App will take place at the Maranatha Church in Belleville.

This is a free event with lunch provided and is an excellent opportunity for frontline staff to network with a cross-section of agencies.  Please refer to the FLYER and AGENDA for more details and contact information.  Hope you can join us for this event.
