This conversation saves lives

Just like physical health, everyone has mental health. Yet this topic is often seen as taboo and conversations surrounding it are cut short.

Let’s open conversations around mental health. Let’s work to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health. Let’s learn how to ask, “Are you thinking about suicide?” Let’s all learn how to say, “I can help.” This is a conversation that can save lives. Connect can help you start the conversation.

Connect builds awareness through public education. It is designed to “Connect people with knowledge and tools to save lives” through presentations, workshop training, and public displays or events.

Presentations aim to educate the public about mental health, coping with stress, and self- care, or provide information on our agency services & programs. Each presentation may range from 1 hour to 3 hours offering valuable information, new coping skills, and effective helping tools.

Suicide Prevention is about promoting emotional well-being, and our facilitator works to ensure that each presentation, focuses on the positive and concludes with a sense of hope or empowerment.

The connect program can also offer resources to help with Bereavement Support. For more information or to request resources email the coordinator at or call the office at 780-539-6680.

Through the connect program we offer the following workshops and presentations:
