Our Guiding Principles
  • We follow the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention's (CASP) guiding principles that suicide is preventable, suicide prevention is everyone’s responsibility, and that suicide prevention strategies should be inclusive, respectful, and informed.

  • Suicide is viewed as a community health problem requiring a variety of interventions across the spectrum of prevention, intervention and postvention (or as BC aboriginal communities have coined hope, help and healing).

  • We value and support open communication, collaboration, and sharing information.

  • We utilize and support best/leading practices, promote collaboration, leverage organizational strengths and resources, and decrease duplication.

  • Present a unified voice for suicide prevention in BC so that we can support and advocate for ourselves as a network of leading suicide prevention agencies.
