Statement on proposed 3-digit suicide prevention hotline

December 11, 2020

The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) supports and commends the recent, unanimously approved motion by the House of Commons to establish a 3-digit suicide prevention hotline. This dedicated line will assist in increasing access to crisis support, where and when it’s needed. We look forward to the details around implementation as they emerge and are hopeful the hotline comes into being as part of an integrated, comprehensive, and funded mental health strategy.
