Suicide can rob us of our loved ones – but it doesn’t have to be like that
Suicide prevention in Canada needs a national voice to provide local support in preventing this national tragedy which is why I donate to CASP. Suicide has touched every family in every part of Canada. It robs us of our grandparents and our grandchildren, our husbands, wives and kids, our neighbours, our teachers and our students.
Yet most suicides could be prevented by caring and committed communities of informed Canadians.
I have supported suicide prevention with thousands of hours of volunteer time and many thousands of dollars in charitable donations.
A death by suicide creates wounds that take years to heal and scars that last forever.
And most suicides could be prevented.
