The Sarnia Lambton Suicide Prevention Committee has been in existence for over 20 years.
This group is comprised of:
• Concerned Citizens
• People with lived experience who have been touched by suicide
We all believe that as a part of this community, stigma against mental illness and suicide is wrong and something needs to be done about it.
- To foster a collaborative effort among individuals and organizations in order to promote community awareness and information about suicide.
- To facilitate the availability of resources and support about suicide to persons who are feeling suicidal or are a survivor of suicide.
- To promote public education, professional development and community advocacy regarding suicide prevention.
To identify the gaps in service in order to increase community capacity and response.
