Working together, we can raise awareness about suicide. We can help someone who maybe struggling and share a message of hope. September is World Suicide Prevention Month. It is estimated that each day in Canada, 11 people will end their life and 210 will 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. And their deaths leave countless family and friends bereaved and their communities impacted. September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day and we invite you to 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. World Suicide Prevention Day is an opportunity to spread the message that help, hope, and healing are possible. On September 10, and every day, we invite you to work together as a community so no one has to feel alone or stay silent.
CMHA Kelowna is offering three reduced rate, suicide alertness training workshops that will teach you to become suicide alert.
