Event Description

After accidents, suicide is the second-most common cause of death among young people in Canada. An alarming 32% of young women and 18% of young men report having thoughts of suicide. While females are twice as likely to attempt suicide, males complete suicide twice as often as women. When suicide occurs, the question most often asked by those left behind is “why?” and "how could we have prevented this?”

Join us as we explore youth suicide. We will talk about the causes of suicide among young people, how to recognize risk and how to respond when someone you care about needs help. Talking about youth suicide is the first step in prevention. Our hope is that this presentation will help us to continue as a community to not only talk, but to listen as well.
