September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day


Annually the C.M.H.A. H.K.P.R. partners with community organizations Telecare Distress Centre and Community Care City of Kawartha Lakes’ Hospice Services to host candlelight vigils in Peterborough and Lindsay. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day will not include a vigil gathering. Instead, we are asking all those who have been affected by suicide to light a candle to place in their window on Sept. 10, honouring those who have died by suicide. Crisis support is available 24 hours a day through Four County Crisis toll-free at 1-866-995-9933
