Today is September 10, World Suicide Prevention Day.

This year’s theme, as determined by the International Association for Suicide Prevention, is “Working together to prevent suicide.” Suicide prevention is everybody’s business.

We encourage you to light a candle or lantern by a window in honour of those lost to suicide at 8 pm this evening.
