Suicide Prevention Week: Let’s Connect & Support Each Other

From February 4th to 10th, 2024, Connexions joins forces with the Association québécoise de prévention du suicide (AQPS) in observing Suicide Prevention Week. This period is dedicated to raising awareness about suicide and promoting ways to support those who may be struggling.

Suicide is a complex issue, but one thing is clear: open, non-judgmental conversations can be a lifeline. We’re committed to fostering an environment where these vital conversations can happen. Whether you’re worried about yourself or concerned for someone else, it’s important to know that help and support are available.

While Connexions is not an emergency service, we are committed to supporting mental well-being in our community. For immediate crisis intervention, please contact Canada’s Suicide Crisis Helpline by dialing 9-8-8.
