Stand up for suicide prevention
We can do something about it right now. Tell your Member of Parliament to stand up for suicide prevention.
On Tuesday, October 4, 2011, the House of Commons in Ottawa is voting on a Liberal Party of Canada motion calling on the government to create Canada’s first National Suicide Prevention Strategy.
But without support from members of all parties in the House of Commons, there’s no guarantee this motion will pass.
Only the Canadian people, speaking together with one voice, can force the government to act.
Suicide is often the result of pain, of fear, of desperation and isolation, and especially the absence of hope. It is almost always preventable.
It’s time for all parties to put politics aside. It’s time to do something for the families who have experienced the tragedy of suicide. And get help to those who need it now.
