Today I was invited to a poster presentation by Lakehead University and Confederation College (Thunder Bay) Nursing students; Marla Allard, Mirnada Thibeault and Robyn Wideman. Their topic, Suicide Prevention.
Driven by professionalism and personal experiences with suicide, their messages were loud and clear; (1) Suicide knows no boundaries (2) We need to talk about suicide NOW.
Congratulations for your personal and professional commitments in creating a dialogue on suicide, advocating for suicide prevention training and doing your part to break the stigma that surrounds suicide.
Not Talking About It Isn’t Working.
