SCSAC Poster 2013 


In honour of World Suicide Prevention Day, the Centre for Suicide Prevention, based in Calgary, Alberta, will be hosting three FREE suicide prevention workshops, including our Straight Talk: Youth Suicide Prevention, Tattered Teddies: Preventing Suicide in Children workshops and safeTALK: suicide awareness. Click here to register for our free workshops.

In addition to attending our free workshops, you can participate in our information campaign. In the week leading up to Sept. 10, we will be tweeting and posting trivia questions about suicide! Our twitter handle is @cspyyc, and we’ll use the #wspd hashtag.

We’re also offering a free downloadable poster, available here.


This past week, we released an infoExchange article about Suicide and Stigma, available here, which is IASP’s theme for this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day. We will also be posting another new publication, a resource toolkit about the “basics” of suicide and suicide prevention.
