As a result of CASP Board planning sessions held in the winter months of 2021, CASP has begun to focus on some new priorities that will revitalize and renew some of the work our organization does.
A few new things on the horizon for CASP for the 2021-2022 fiscal year, include:
Renewed Focus on Advocacy
- With refreshed vigour, CASP will continue to advocate in the areas of:
- National Action Plan Funding & Coordination
- Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)
- Responsible Media Reporting & Language
- Stigma around Talking About Suicide
- First Peoples & Life Promotion
CASP Awareness Campaign
Stayed tuned for an awareness campaign that will help propel CASP’s messaging and awareness about our organization throughout Canada.
New Nationwide Events
Coming to a restaurant near you (after COVID restrictions have lifted), CASP will be engaging a new partner to create local awareness events in conjunction with local eateries across the country. Details coming soon!
Of course, in addition to these new things CASP will continue to:
- Host the National Conference for the suicide prevention sector in Montreal (May 11-13, 2022), this year in collaboration with the Centre for Research and Intervention on Suicide, Ethical Issues and End-of-Life Practices (CRISE-UQAM) and the Association québécoise de prévention du suicide (AQPS).
- Honour World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10th.
- Recognize the International Day for People Impacted by Suicide Loss on November 20th.
- Collaborate with other organizations in the sector as a leader in the National Collaborative for Suicide Prevention.
With all of these plans on the horizon, it is a great time to make sure you are in “the know” of all things CASP. Subscribe to our newsletter.
