Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund donates $25,000 to the Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton to support the rollout of SafeTALK training
Hamilton, February 10, 2015 – The Suicide Prevention Community Council of Hamilton (SPCCH) is pleased to receive a $25,000 grant from the Bell Let’s Talk Community Fund to support evidence-based suicide prevention education and training for 750 first responders in the police, paramedic and fire services in Hamilton. First interveners, such as police officers, firefighters and paramedic services are often a first line resource for people who have significant mental health, emotional or substance abuse issues that may be suicidal.
The Art Matters Project: Stop Mental Health Stigma was co-ordinated by Genevieve Stacey, a graduate student of art therapy, and Marisa Mariella, head of student services at Bishop Ryan.
The group met in September, had a candid discussion about mental illness and then painted. Mariella said the interest from students was staggering.
Members of the Bishop Ryan Celtic Circle Student Leaders were recognized for their exemplary peer helping program at the Ontario School Counsellors’ Association (OSCA) Gala Dinner on November 9th where they were presented with the association’s prestigious Daryl L. Cook Peer Helping Award.
The award, which honours Daryl Cook’s outstanding contribution to guidance counselling in Ontario and acknowledges her strong support of peer helping programs in Ontario schools, is presented to one school in Ontario annually.
