Description

June is Men's Health Month - which for the Centre for Suicide Prevention, is Buddy Up Month! In Canada, men have a suicide rate three times higher than women. Why? We have socialized men to be strong, stoic and self-reliant; showing emotion is a sign of weakness, as is asking for help. Men are dying in alarming numbers, all around us, alone.

How can we change this reality? Everyone has a role in preventing suicide. Join us for this session withthe Centre for Suicide Prevention as we learn how to look out for your buddy and raise awareness for men’s suicide prevention. 

Register for this webianr and receive a FREE resource and swag pack to help continue the conversation! You can also join the Buddy Up Challenge, where you can connect with your buddies for a chance to win great prizes!
