Association québécoise de prévention du suicide – Talking about suicide

January 30 @ 8:00 am - February 5 @ 5:00 pm EST

Talking about suicide isn’t easy — the most important conversations rarely are — but as the Association québécoise de prévention du suicide (AQPS) reminds us, talking can save lives.

The campaign calls on everyone, from individuals to government bodies, to help put an end to suicide in Quebec and across the country. If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to join the more than 65,000 people who’ve signed the AQPS suicide prevention declaration.

But above and beyond signing your name, we urge you to raise your voice. The howtotalkaboutsuide.com website that AQPS curates is an invaluable resource to help guide your conversations. Whether you are having distressing thoughts, worried about a friend or co-worker, or covering suicide in the media, the site offers a wealth of resources to help you safely broach the topic.

To join the conversation, use the hashtag #TalkingAboutSuicide.

Find all our suicide prevention resources.
