Toolkit for people who have been Impacted by suicide
 
         


The Mental Health Commission of Canada, in collaboration with the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, the Centre for Suicide Prevention, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, is developing toolkits to support people who have been impacted by suicide. One toolkit will be tailored for people who have been impacted by suicide attempt(s), and the other toolkit will be focused on resources for people who have lost someone to suicide.


At this point in the project, we are seeking input from people who have been affected by suicide. If you have lived experience related to suicide (e.g., suicide attempt, suicide loss, or provide care or support to someone with suicide thoughts or attempt(s)), we are interested in your feedback to help inform what topics, content areas, resources, and information is needed and most appropriate to include in the toolkits. We want to know what would be most helpful and useful to those who have been impacted by suicide. We welcome your responses to the following questions.


Please note that the responses to this survey will not be closely monitored. If you are currently experiencing distressing thoughts or thoughts of suicide and need immediate assistance, please contact your local distress line: http://suicideprevention.ca/need-help/
