Conference Mission:

Our conference theme of Reconciliation: Honouring the Other forefronts the need to heal relationships to drive connectedness, a key underpinning of suicide prevention. Whether we are focused on individual relationships, engaging with priority populations or fueling the suicide prevention network across Canada, reconciliation and honouring is needed.

All are welcome: suicide attempt survivors, persons impacted by suicide loss, caregivers, researchers, clinicians, and communities interested in suicide prevention.
