Days of Action

World: September 10, 2017
University of Alberta Day of Action: September 11, 2017

Many people have been impacted by suicide or at least know someone who has. It is not someone else’s problem. It is our problem. Fortunately, suicide is preventable. Most people who die by suicide do not necessarily want to die. They simply want the pain of living to stop, and we can help.

What can you do?
