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