Taking part in Suicide Prevention Week means adding your voice to a larger movement of people who refuse to accept suicide as an option. Every year for one week, make a commitment to prevent suicide in your community and among your loved ones.
On average, three Quebecers take their own lives every day. That is three friends, parents, children, or spouses too many. We can’t accept the loss of all those members of our community. Suicide is never the answer.
With the theme “Prevention is better than death,” the 33rd edition of Suicide Prevention Week reminds us that suicide is not inevitable. By working together, we can save lives.
For Suicide Prevention Week, let’s dare to talk about suicide. Let’s be bold enough to break taboos. By opening up a dialogue, we can build a vast network of people who are aware and ready to act for their loved ones and themselves.

Join the #DareToTalkAboutSuicide campaign on your social networks.
