CSPP has its roots in the Tri-Community area of Parkland, Spruce Grove and Stony Plain. CSPP has been proactive in the area of suicide awareness and prevention since 1998.
1. To reduce the number of suicides occurring in the greater Parkland region.
2. To eliminate the stigma around talking openly about suicide.
3. To educate and increase awareness about issues surrounding suicide.
Workshops and presentations on suicide awareness within our schools, workplaces, institutions and general community.
Supporting workshops in Applied Suicide Intervention System Training (ASIST) for professionals and other interested groups.
Promoting events that highlight the fight against depression and suicide, partnering with other community agencies as necessary.
Helping direct individuals at risk to professional support within the community.
Promoting a volunteer program to assist with CSPP activities.
Distribution of SAFE (Suicide, Awareness, Fundamental, Education) Kits to local community groups and schools. These provide youth the information they need to in order to give them the knowledge and skills to help themselves, and others in taking the preventative intervention measures if they are ever faced with any issues surrounding suicide.
Maintaining a library of resources and information in the area of suicide awareness.
CSPP operates out of a small office located in the Stony Plain Youth Centre located at 4902 51st. Avenue, Stony Plain.
