Take Action

Act.

  • Pay more attention to mental health & well-being;
    Encourage it in others;
  • Support a loved one/friend/colleague living with a mental health issue or illness, who is going through a difficult time, is struggling with suicidal thoughts or has lost a loved one to suicide;
  • Do not use commit suicide or successful suicide;
    Use died by suicide’ or ‘suicided’;
  • Reassure others that it's ok to talk about suicide.
    Talking about suicide can help elected officials shape policy;
    can improve the mental health system;
    ensures programs exist for all Canadians, such as skills groups
    for those who have attempted suicide and bereavement support;
  • Take a suicide alertness or intervention training
    (SafeTALK/ASIST/Mental Health First Aid, others).
    Just like we learn physical first aid skills we can also learn emotional first aid skills;
    Encourage families/friends/co-workers/faith groups/coaches
    to lead others to take and host training in your community.
  • Raise funds;
  • Host or attend a World Suicide Prevention Day event.
