Everyone seems to have been affected by suicide in one way or another. It could be a family member, friend, colleague or someone close. It touches all of our lives and the effects can impact the survivors for a lifetime. The LifeLine was developed through dedication to helping others who have been affected by suicide as a centralized tool to access and connect with accredited resources in Canada and Worldwide.
The LifeLine Canada (TLC) is a suicide prevention and positive mental health based foundation that is committed to the prevention of suicide in Canada and Worldwide and has made work in this area a top priority. TLC is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to reducing the frequency of suicide deaths and attempts across Canada and Worldwide. We envision a world where suicide is a rare event, where people are nurtured and supported, where individuals and families are aware of the risk factors for suicide and actively seek help from accessible, effective community resources.
Suicide is a serious public health problem that can have lasting, harmful effects on individuals, families, and communities. It’s an issue that is still surrounded by fear, shame, and silence. By breaking through the barrier of stigma and openly addressing the factors that contribute to suicide, we can all take a more active and effective role in helping to prevent it and support those who are bereaved.
Our secret weapon is ourselves, our families and our friends. Using The LifeLine App as a first go-to tool, with instant guidance and support, we help prevent suicides, build awareness, support survivors of suicide and work to eliminate the stigma surrounding suicide.
"The effects on family and friends left picking up the shattered pieces after a suicide are so devastating and destructive. It can get so much worse before it gets better. It is a very long windy road of healing. The grief changes shape, but it never really ends."
Guidance, Love and Support are KEY.
