Conference Mission

The act of reconciliation represents why we invite our members, allies and communities to gather yearly: together we heal from the impact of suicide on our lives, together we establish new goals for preventing suicide, together we harmonize our efforts towards a Canada without suicide. This conference is Canada’s premiere meeting of attempt survivors, of those living with grief, of caregivers, researchers, clinicians, and also of community leaders who are eager to forge new bonds and improve our networks’ engagement towards those at risk. We can break patterns of isolation, marginalisation and oppression by creating a space where researchers can  share new knowledge, clinicians can share best practices and survivors can share their experiences. This web of intersections has the power to heal harm done collectively to the social fabric.

Currently in Canada, the theme of Reconciliation invites us to take stock of Indigenous perspectives to our approaches, but the conference also serves to present all types of progress in suicide prevention.

L’acte de la réconciliation représente la raison pour laquelle nous invitons nos membres, nos alliés et nos communautés à se réunir une fois par année: ensemble nous nous rétablissons de l’impact du suicide sur nos vies, ensemble nous fixons nos nouveaux objectifs pour prévenir le suicide, ensemble nous harmonisons nos efforts envers un Canada sans suicide. Ce congrès est la rencontre par excellence au Canada de victimes de tentatives, de personnes endeuillées, de proches aidants, chercheurs et cliniciens, ainsi que de leaders communautaires avides de forger de nouveaux liens et d’améliorer l’engagement de nos réseaux envers ceux et celles qui sont à risque. Nous pouvons briser l’isolement, la marginalisation et l’oppression en créant un lieu où les chercheurs peuvent partager des nouvelles connaissances, où les cliniciens peuvent partager des pratiques exemplaires et où les victimes peuvent partager leur vécu. Cette toile d’intersections a le pouvoir de guérir les torts collectifs infligés au tissu social.

Présentement au Canada, le thème de la Réconciliation nous invite à prendre conscience des perspectives autochtones envers nos approches, mais le congrès sert également à faire connaître tous les types de progrès en prévention du suicide.
