This year’s World Suicide Prevention Day theme, The First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum, a framework developed by Thunderbird Partnership Foundation with Indigenous and non-Indigenous partners including Health Canada, which describes and explains these four aspects in action, and how aligning them brings wholeness.
This is also the theme of our 2019-2020 Annual Report, which has just been released!
This year, as always, we’ll be hosting workshops for World Suicide Prevention Day at our Calgary Learning Centre and online. We’re able to offer one free workshop this year, suicide to Hope, thanks to sponsorship from LivingWorks Education Inc.
