Hope and connectedness are central to reducing the impact of suicide in our communities. Through partnerships and open dialogue, this conference aims to enhance understanding of suicide and suicide prevention and motivate communities to take action on a local level. This conference will inspire people to act as we learn from one another and acknowledge that we all have a role to play in reducing the impact of suicide.
