Requesting $50000


We equip people with knowledge and skills to respond to those considering suicide.

We educate for life.

Every year in Canada, thousands of people die by suicide. Education is one of few best practices in suicide prevention; it shares knowledge and breaks down stigma. Your donation helps amplify the message that suicide is preventable and hope is possible.

“Every time someone in my life admitted to having thoughts of suicide, I felt unprepared and afraid. I thought it wasn’t okay to talk about, I didn’t know what to say or how to help. After taking this training, I feel far more confident to have an open and honest conversation.”

“After experiencing many suicides in my personal life, nothing prepared me quite as well as this course…by breaking down the barriers to free flowing conversation about suicide that was thoughtful, empathetic and real…I feel prepared to support others.”
