Often the result of untreated mental illness, suicide has become the second leading cause of death in teens, in Saskatchewan. These individuals can feel alone or ashamed. It is perceived that people afflicted with these conditions can be cured or remedied by the contents found in a first aid kit but this is not always the case. We need to be there for one another to provide support by showing that nobody is alone.

What would you say if you knew someone was thinking of taking their life?

We are asking everyone to do just this, provide support by not remaining silent. Share what you would say. Use #WhatWouldYouSay #UnderstandUs on social media outlets and show your support; make a video, share an image, or just create a conversation. Together we can make a difference.
