Promote Social Networks and Connectedness
Social support and connection are key protective factors against suicide. Supportive social relationships and community connectedness can help protect people despite the presence of other risk factors in their lives or social environment. Connectedness can be enhanced through social programs for specific population groups (such as older adults or at risk youth) as well as more general activities that promote positive and supportive communities. In addition to the programming ran by SPRC, there are many supportive groups within our community. We can help you find the supports that best suit your need. Please call our office for more information (780-539-6680).
