Community Suicide Prevention & Resiliency
Description: Communities Addressing Suicide Together (CAST) was founded in 2006 in Nova Scotia to enact the Framework to Address Suicide in NS. Recognizing suicide as a public health issue, the CAST model is informed by the Social Determinants of Health, utilizing a coalition model that allows different communities to come together to address gaps in services. This webinar will explore the CAST Coalition Model and some of the empirical evidence on the vital role of community suicide prevention & resiliency.
This webinar is intended to give attendees a better understanding of suicide; the role of community in suicide prevention, and how we can promote resiliency and hope for our at-risk communities.
