The Suicide Awareness Council of Wellington-Dufferin believes that suicide prevention is a shared responsibility where people can make a difference and save a life. Everyone has the right to a future with hope and possibilities.
Since 1999, we have worked toward breaking down the stigma associated with suicide by providing practical resources, creating opportunities for dialogue, knowledge sharing, and building community partnerships.
The Council is a volunteer collective of organizations and individuals who come together to fulfil its mission and values. We are inclusive of all ages, genders, and ethnicities. We do not have any political affiliations.
