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 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.
Here is what we are working towards.
Our work would not be possible without the generosity of our partners.
We offer programs to prepare participants for life’s challenges.
