CMHA recognizes World Suicide Prevention Day

The CMHA joins the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) in inviting all
individuals and communities to find a way to recognize and support World Suicide Prevention
Day (WSPD) on September 10th. It can be as simple as sending a message to those who are in
despair, those who are grieving, and those who are supporting someone who is struggling with
life’s challenges. By spreading the word that help, hope and healing are possible, we can work
together to prevent suicide.

CASP estimates that each day in Canada, 10 people end their life and 200 make a suicide
attempt. Suicide occurs across all age, economic, social, and ethnic boundaries.

CMHA Cochrane-Timiskaming offers walk-in crisis services in Timmins, Kirkland Lake and New Liskeard during regular business hours.  There are also telephone crisis services available in our region

Talking about suicide can provide relief and being a listener is the best intervention anyone can
give. Here are a few ways you can help:
Take all threats or attempts seriously
