WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY
September 10, 2021
Each year on September 10th, people in over 50 countries around the world connect with each other by officially recognizing World Suicide Prevention Day.
World Suicide Prevention Day is a chance to promote understanding about suicide: those impacted by a suicide attempt or loss, family or friends, organizations, professionals, politicians, volunteers, and community members.
In recognition of this day, we will be hosting a virtual ONLINE EVENT on Friday, September 10, 2021 at 2:00 PM EST, in English with French subtitles, on this year’s theme of “Creating Hope Through Action”.
The event will feature presentations by a group of panelists who will share their unique experiences of suicide-related behaviours and actions and what was and wasn’t supportive to them during this time. Following the presentations, there will be a live Q & A. At the end of the session, participants will be encouraged to participate later that evening in a “Candle Vigil”, by placing a lit candle in their window to “Light a Flame of Hope” at 8:00 pm in their respective time zones.
