Creating a Suicide Safer Community in Ottawaour Network

News: Suicide Prevention Forum Key Themes 2016

The Community Suicide Prevention Network hosted a community forum in November 2015. At the forum, the Ottawa community came together to discuss and plan ways to prevent suicide in our city, with special attention paid to the issues facing our transitional aged youth. Our aim was to start a dialogue about the strategic plan for the Suicide Prevention Network for the next three years.

As part of that conversation we heard about current evidence and considered our future directions. Throughout the day we witnessed a passion and commitment to having an impact in this area, and a willingness to engage in planning and implementation. As organizers we took care to capture the learnings of the day and to document the ideas and key themes that were discussed.
