Back to Blog Listing Page | | September 10, 2018

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 is “Working Together to Prevent Suicide”.

Our team of youth workers, mental health clinicians and case managers all work together to ensure our young peoples mental health needs are being met.
