Suicide Prevention Week

According to the WHO, around the world there’s a suicide every 40 seconds, and a suicide attempt every 3 seconds, for a total of 1 million suicides a year. In Quebec alone, 1,102 people took their own lives in 2012. From February 1 to 7, 2015, let’s raise the awareness of those around us on the occasion of the 25th Suicide Prevention Week in Quebec, whose theme this year is: You’re important to us. Suicide isn’t an option.  For further information, visit www.aqps.info.
