The Centre for Suicide Prevention was honoured by the Calgary Herald this year by being one of the twelve non-profit organizations chosen as a recipient of their 2018 Christmas Fund.

This year, the fund totaled $746,465 with an additional $15,516 donated by the Calgary Firefighters Charitable Foundation.

From this total, the Centre for Suicide Prevention will receive over $60,000!

Thank you to the Calgary Herald Christmas Fund and to the Calgary Firefighters Charitable Foundation.

This money will go towards suicide prevention focused on men in the workplace, as middle-aged men die by suicide in the largest numbers.
