HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The Suicide Awareness Council needs people like you!
Read below to find out how you can make a difference.
The Suicide Awareness Council's volunteer membership includes individuals with lived experience, family members, community members, and people who represent senior groups, faith communities and service providers across all sectors throughout Wellington and Dufferin Counties. Working collaboratively, we have the common goal of building suicide safer communities by raising awareness through encouraging community conversation that assists in reducing the stigma around suicide. The Council is also a forum to share information, resources and to promote access to services and education.
The Council meets six times a year on the third Thursday of the month (January, March, May, July, September and November) from 1:30 to 3:30pm at the Upper Grand Family Health Team in Fergus. Ad hoc working groups are initiated as needed related to specific projects and events.
If you are interested in becoming a Council member or you would like more information on how you can get involved, please fill out the contact form on this page or give us a call at 1-844-264-2993 ext. 7015.
