Connecting Canada

One World Connected is the theme that the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) chose for this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD).

Being connected with oneself, with others, and a community is critical to one’s well being.  Building connections is one of the pillars of suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.

On September 10 Canadians will gather to show their support for suicide prevention, to remember and celebrate the lives those who have died, comfort those who grieve and strengthen our connection with each other.  During WSPD we will remember that we are all connected to each other.

We invite everyone to find a way of connecting to WSPD to shine a light on this important issue, sending a message to those who are despairing, connection to those who are grieving and reminding us all that there is help, hope and people who care.

On September 10 CASP and Klinic will launch a website to help workplaces support suicide prevention; a resource to help people who might receive a call from someone who in distress.

This is also the theme for this year’s virtual suicide prevention conference, November 19 - 21, 2014.  To learn more about the virtual suicide prevention conference.
