National Suicide Prevention, Canada
SEPTEMBER 8, 2017
It is estimated that each day in Canada, 11 people end their life and 210 make a suicide attempt. Suicide occurs across all age, economic, social, and ethnic boundaries. The pain that leads individuals to take their lives is unimaginable. Their deaths leave countless family and friends bereaved and their communities impacted. On September 10th, the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) invites all the Canadian communities to find at least one way of connecting to World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD). Your efforts will shine a light on this important issue, sending a message to those who are despairing, those who are grieving, and those who are supporting someone who is struggling. WSPD is an opportunity to spread the message that help, hope, and healing are possible. This good deed was nominated by David Weber of our Kitchener branch.
