About Centre for Suicide Prevention

The Centre for Suicide Prevention is an education centre, a centre of excellence based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We are a branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

For over 40 years, we’ve been equipping Canadians with the information, knowledge and skills necessary to respond to people who are thinking about suicide.

We educate online, in print, and interactively. Our library of over 45,000 suicide-specific items, the largest English-language collection of its kind, informs the work we do.

Our Impact

After taking the workshops we offer, participants feel more equipped to respond to those at risk of suicide. 93% of Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training participants reported that they felt more prepared to help someone thinking about suicide.

“I can say that ASIST is an important and valuable training to have no matter what line of work you are in. We are all in contact with other humans on a daily basis so we can come across a situation where ASIST could be beneficial.” – ASIST participant

 

After reading our resource toolkits, people were more aware of the warning signs of suicide and more confident to share information about suicide.

“Any regular person, even without training, can use a toolkit to guide their conversation to help someone.” – Toolkit reader

 

Champions of our Buddy Up campaign, a suicide prevention campaign for men, by men, have found it to be an effective way to educate about suicide prevention and how to have a conversation.

“In the construction industry and society, men aren’t always willing to talk about… how they’re doing mentally. It’s important that we take command and (let) employees… know that it’s okay to not be okay.” – Mike P.
