This Year, Suicide Prevention Week (Feb 5-Feb 11) With the Theme: Prevention is Better Than Death

With the theme ” Prevention is Better than Death”, the 33rd edition of Suicide Prevention Week reminds us that suicide is not inevitable. To reduce suicide rates, it is important to open up both a one‑on‑one and a collective dialogue on the topic. Since suicide already receives extensive media coverage and features prominently in fiction and on social networks, the AQPS believes that it is important to answer the questions that many Quebecers have and offer guidance on how to talk about it.

Talking about suicide is an essential starting point for prevention that is within everyone’s reach.

ℹ️ Find resources from the Association québécoise de prévention du suicide (AQPS) to help you talk about suicide in a preventive and safe manner as well as ways to develop careful listening skills.

ℹ️ Find Mental Health Resources, Suicide Prevention Resources for Youth and Suicide Prevention Resources for Adults on our Website.
