Message from Charity

Funds Raised Will Be Donated to the Suicide Prevention Community Council

The money raised this year will be supporting the Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton, focusing of education, training, community awareness, stigma reduction and advocacy.

Targeted areas include:
1. Education: evidence-based educational programs will be organized for community participants interested in being able to engage in meaningful prevention activities.
2. Student Engagement: the SPCCH has introduced a collaborative program working with the mental health leads of both public and catholic school boards to provide student-led, teacher facilitated mental health grants. These grants funds student initiatives to promote mental health awareness, reduce stigma, and foster help seeking behaviour. This culminates in an annual conference where students share their projects and outcomes achieved.
3. Peer Support: funds raised will be used to help support families either touched by suicide or concerned about friends or family members through the creation of a peer support program.

My Message
