SUICIDE PREVENTION, EDUCATION AND COUNSELLING
Do you have a child that has made a suicide attempt or is at risk of doing so?
The Suicide Prevention, Education and Counselling (SPEAC) program provides support and tools necessary to significantly reduce the risk of suicide.
SPEAC provides suicide risk assessment, urgent-response and short-term counselling for children and youth. Services offered include:
- Individual and family counselling
- Risk assessment
Workshops are available to schools, community agencies and special interest groups. Participants will learn how to identify warning signs of suicide and ways of providing support to those at-risk. For more information, download SPEAC - School Presentation Information.
