Participants experiencing active suicidal or self-harm thoughts and behaviors are required to have an existing individual treatment provider (e.g., psychologist, psychiatrist, counsellor, or case manager) whom they are seeing regularly (minimally once per month), and agree to manage any risk-related issues, in order to enroll in the skills group.
