Myths and facts: Suicide Prevention in the Workplace

Description: Suicide prevention is everyone’s business. Preventing a death by suicide does not always need an expert; it is something we all can do.

Join the Mental Health Commission of Canada and the Centre for Suicide Prevention as we discuss suicide prevention in the workplace.
