"The existing Manitoba Suicide Prevention Framework guided the development of this strategy. The framework is based on the following five components that provide a comprehensive
approach to suicide prevention.

A) Assessment and Planning
B) Mental Health Promotion
C) Awareness and Understanding
D) Prevention, Intervention and Postvention
E) Data, Surveillance, Research and Evaluation

It is recognized that many existing initiatives will contribute to the comprehensive youth strategy. An inventory of current initiatives was developed and analysed within the context of the five components above and gaps were identified. New initiatives were prioritized according to the following criteria:
• evidence-based or evidence-informed;
• reaches youth considered to be “at risk”;
• emphasizes traditional wellness;
• transferable across communities but recognizes community uniqueness;
• builds community capacity; and
• reduces the disparity between northern and southern communities."
