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.
