CASP 2016 – Hope, Help, and Healing Conference
October 26th – 29th | Iqaluit, Nunavut
Join us for the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention – Hope, Help, and Healing Conference, October 26th – 29th in Iqaluit, Nunavut.
This conference will be of relevance and interest to all who practice in the areas of social and individual wellness, suicide prevention and the reduction of suicide. The topics and learnings will consider similarities and unique aspects regarding suicide reduction from Canadian and world perspectives, with an emphasis on best practices, innovation, and solutions.
It is widely recognized that suicide statistics across Nunavut and Nunavik have become the highest in the country. The Premier of Nunavut has recently declared suicide a territorial crisis. With the recent suicide inquest in Nunavut, the need for a conference to address suicide was noted as relevant and essential. Nunavummiut are grappling with why so much suicidal behaviour continues to occur, and what can be done to address this phenomenon. While Kamatsiaqtut recognizes that there is no one solution or action, there is a strong need to demonstrate recognition and awareness that something needs to occur towards continued dialogue, determination for solutions and institution of actions.
Please consider traveling to Iqaluit, Nunavut’s and Canada’s newest capital city, and participating and collaborating in a conference that will be energizing, positive, forward-thinking and affirming that there are always solutions. Whether you are a presenter or participant, we look forward to seeing you in October 2016.
