Our Goals

Public awareness is one of many activities laid out in Living Hope that together make up a comprehensive strategy for how suicide can be prevented.

The three goals of the plan are :

  • Goal 1: To provide awareness and education that promotes positive mental health, reduces the stigma of suicide and provides an understanding of how to help someone considering suicide
  • Goal 2: To ensure the whole continuum of services – prevention, intervention, postvention – is fully accessible
  • Goal 3: To address the needs of higher risk populations
