About This Charity

Our Mission

The Canadian Association of Suicide Prevention (CASP) was incorporated in 1985 by a group of individuals dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by suicide. For over 20 years CASP has been working to provide information and resources to communities, to reduce the suicide rate and to minimize the harmful consequences of suicidal behaviour in Canada.

About Our Charity

We are Canadians who want to reduce suicide and its impact in Canada. We represent experts and volunteers, school and community suicide prevention initiatives, mental health workers, researchers, crisis centres and families who have been impacted by suicide.

We are survivors of loss. Among us, we have lost children, parents, family members, neighbours, friends, patients and clients. So have most of you.

We want to end the silence. We want to ease the suffering, to heal our communities and our neighbours, as we have healed ourselves. We want to prevent others from experiencing such pain and such loss.
