Partners & Funders

With Suicide Prevention Ottawa (SPO) you’ll find representatives from education, primary care, community health, justice, child welfare, peer support, and research all sitting at the same table working together to overcome the challenges our system faces in supporting people who are impacted by suicide.

That’s because when someone struggles with suicide, their need for support doesn’t end at school, or in their family doctor’s office. It extends to other areas of their lives where there are opportunities to identify risk, connect to informal and formal supports, and promote strength. This is why the SPO’s success relies on bringing disparate groups of people together to come up with comprehensive strategies to prevent suicide.

You are all welcome to join us as we work towards reducing the harmful impact of suicidal behavior in Ottawa. There are opportunities to join our working groups, attend events, receive information, or participate in other ways. Connect with the Coordinator of SPO to discuss what may fit best for you.

While not an exhaustive list, here are a few of the organizations that we have collaborated with in the past:

We wanted to acknowledge the funders that made our work possible over the years. Thank you for the support of the The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group, CHEO, Youth Services Bureau, Canadian Mental Health Association, The City of Ottawa – Ottawa Public Health, and the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.
