CASP IS NOT A CRISIS CENTRE
The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) provides advocacy, communication and education for suicide prevention and life promotion through educational materials and resources.
We have been in existence for over 35 years and we envision a Canada without suicide. Our ultimate purpose is to reduce the suicide rate in Canada and to mitigate the painful consequences of suicidal behaviour.
