Join us in our mission to encourage conversation about suicide, to provide information and hope, and to foster prevention through wellness.
The International Association of Suicide Prevention (IASP) has released for the first time ever a universal suicide prevention awareness ribbon to support World Suicide Prevention Day. Our goal is to get these into as many hands of Canadians as possible, with the aim of raising awareness to the issue of suicide and provide global recognition to the meaning of the ribbon.
Yellow and orange were shown to be the two most frequently used colours in suicide prevention awareness around the world. The Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) also believes orange and yellow colours illicit feelings of hope, like the dawning of a sunrise on a new day.
Participants will receive a ribbon to pin onto their t-shirts as we walk together for wellness and suicide prevention.
