Creating a Suicide Safer Community in Ottawa

Welcome to the Community Suicide Prevention Network

We’re working together in Ottawa to make services more effective at preventing suicide among children, youth and young adults.

The Suicide Prevention Network brings organizations like the schools, hospitals, police, colleges and universities and community organizations together to make programs and services better, and to build new ones. Everyone in the community is welcome to join us as we work towards reducing the harmful impact of suicidal behavior in Ottawa.

For 24/7 bilingual, crisis support, call the Child Youth and Family Crisis Line at 613-260-2360, or 1-877-377-7775 (outside Ottawa) or call the Crisis Line at 1-866-996-0991.
