Increasing mental health awareness, enhancing wellness and reducing stigma starts with all of us. CMHA York and South Simcoe offers our community a comprehensive education and training program designed to give you and those around you, the mechanisms to promote, support and achieve enhanced mental health wellness in your home, in the community and in your workplace.
That’s why we are helping to promote a new online program called LivingWorks Start – a simple, powerful online training program to help us recognize the signs of suicide and take meaningful action to protect others. To help reach more people with these life-saving skills, LivingWorks is offering this program at a reduced cost and is donating 25% of the proceeds to CMHA York Region South Simcoe to put towards the enhancement of our programs and services, so we can continue to ensure those in our community have access to the mental health support and treatment that they need. No matter who we are, every one of us can make a difference in Suicide Prevention. Sign up here
