Seek Help

Across the Life Span

The rates for suicide are three times higher for men.

Suicide is the 9th leading cause of death in Canada but for youth and young adults it is the 2nd leading cause of death.

60% of people won’t seek help for a mental illness.

For every suicide 15 to 30 people are impacted and that number can climb higher than 135 people.

90% of suicides are related to mental illness.

The Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program (CSPP) is a prevention and education program, based in Stony Plain and serving the Parkland Region West of Edmonton, specifically  Parkland County, City of Spruce Grove and the Town of Stony Plain through the Stony Plain Family and Community Support Services.

We work in partnership with schools and community groups to reduce stigma related to suicide, to build community capacity by equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to people at risk of suicide, to provide resources for suicide support, and to support those who have lost loved ones to suicide.

The Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program is excited to join the Early Adopters Program for Roots of Hope as part of the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s “Made in Canada” suicide strategy.  The project will take place over the next three years starting in September of 2021.  The project will focus on 5 aspects of suicide prevention: specialized supports, training and networks, public awareness campaigns, means restriction, and research.

The Coordinated Suicide Prevention Program participates in events that promote awareness for suicide such as The Darkness Into Light Walk, The Rotary Run for Life, Mental Health Week, and Survivors of Suicide Day.
