Toolkit for People Impacted by a Suicide Loss

Published by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. Developed through input, feedback and guidance of the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, the Centre for Suicide Prevention, the Public Health Agency of Canada and people with lived experience related to suicide.

There is no right or wrong way to seek help. This toolkit is not designed to be an exhaustive list of the very wide variety of resources available across Canada for support. This toolkit is a summary of the tools that have resonated most with the hundreds of people who completed our online survey and resources from a literature review completed by the Centre for Suicide Prevention.

If you are not finding the tools and resources that resonate most with you, you may consider talking with someone. You may wish to connect with a trained volunteer by contacting your local distress centre or Kids Help Phone.
