Sunday, Sept. 10, was World Suicide Prevention Day, an important reminder of our collective commitment to providing compassionate mental health support to our patients and colleagues. Globally, more than 700,000 lives are lost to suicide every year, according to the World Health Organization. Many more grapple with thoughts of suicide – it is estimated that every day 200 Canadians attempt to take their own life. Our colleagues at the Centre for Mental Health are on the frontlines of this challenge, offering help and hope to patients in their darkest moments. Yet, it is not their challenge alone. We collectively share a responsibility to raise awareness and eradicate the stigma surrounding mental health issues, including suicidal ideation. Looking ahead, on Nov. 30, Canada will launch the 988 national suicide prevention crisis hotline. Like 911, this three-digit number will give people an accessible, easy number to call when they need urgent help. Until then, individuals in crisis can contact Talk Suicide Canada at 1-833-456-4566 or text 45645. Remember, suicide is preventable, and together, we can ensure no one suffers in silence.
