Each year on September 10, World Suicide Prevention Day marks a commitment to saving lives by bringing together communities from across Canada and around the world.
This year’s theme is Take a Minute, Change a Life to demonstrate the important role we all have to play in supporting those who are vulnerable.
We all have a minute to change a life.
We invite you to show your support by:
- joining in one of the many community events and efforts that will be happening;
- raising awareness on World Suicide Prevention Day by wearing a WSPD ribbon;
- taking a picture using the #WSPD17 on your preferred social media platform and;
- joining the Mysterious Barricades: A Cross Canada Concert for Suicide Awareness, Prevention & Hope
If you, or someone you know if having thoughts of suicide, reach out to your local distress center today: http://suicideprevention.ca/need-help/
