The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Champlain East works in partnership with the community of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott, Russell and Akwesasne to develop and support comprehensive strategies to prevent suicide.

The Coalition is comprised of a Steering Committee and three Work Groups in the areas of suicide prevention, intervention and postvention. Our commitment is to look at how we can minimize the harmful consequences of suicide and create a suicide safer community.

Vision

The Coalition aims to provide support and encourage collaboration in accomplishing the goals set out by the individual committees.

Value Statement

We envision the community of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott, Russell and Akwesasne as life-affirming. We envision a community that is able to prevent suicide deaths by being a community that understands, recognizes, intervenes and supports people.

Principles

  1. Mobilize the community by collaboration within in order to promote general awareness; recognize a shared responsibility across organizations, the community at large as well as including the contribution of people who have been directly affected by suicide.
  2. Provide tools to enable individuals to make life-affirming choices.
  3. Respect choices of all individuals.
  4. Effective solutions come out of working together.
  5. Initiatives must be inclusive, respecting the diversity of our community, including cultural and linguistics, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, gender, age, ability, among other differences.
