Each year on September 10, a commitment to saving lives brings together communities from across Canada and around the world. Since 2003, World Suicide Prevention Day has served as a call to action to individuals and organizations to prevent suicide. This year, the theme —Connect, Communicate Care — encourages us all to do just that.
Showing care and concern to someone who may be thinking about suicide can make all the difference. Join the Canadian Association of Suicide Prevention and the communities across Canada in working towards the common goal of preventing suicide.
