The Assertive Outreach Suicide Prevention (A.O.S.P.) program is based out of Peterborough Regional Health Centre and Ross Memorial Hospital. The program connects with individuals who have had a suicide attempt, with the intent to die, to assertively engage with them and establish a safety plan and connect them to longer term services. The A.O.S.P. program has a family education support worker who works directly with the families, friends and loved ones of the individuals referred to the A.O.S.P. program.
Access to the A.O.S.P. program requires a referral from the hospital.
