Safe Kids Vermont & Northern New England Poison Center


The Northern New England Poison Center and Safe Kids Vermont has developed a new nationally accredited toolkit for primary care providers, parents, and other key stakeholders. Across the country, a growing number of young people are attempting to hurt themselves by poisoning.

Resource for Health Care Providers

Preventing Intentional Self-Poisoning in Youth: A Toolkit for Vermont Health Care Providers was developed by the NNEPC in collaboration with Safe Kids Vermont. This toolkit provides background information on the rise of self-harm poisonings in teenagers and tools that primary care providers can use in their practices to help prevent these poisonings. While the toolkit contains data and resources specific to Vermont, the trends are similar across northern New England, and the framework of the toolkit can help providers anywhere.
