BELL Lets Talk 2012-2014
YLC Founder Rory Butler attended the CTV studio in Toronto and responded directly online to requests for help received during the day. Rory was interviewed live to the nation on Canada AM by host 锡默斯·奥里根 (who is now the Federal Minister of Veteran’s Affairs).
An 文章 [link to http://www.yourlifecounts.org/sites/default/files/www_ctvnews_ca_health_lets_talk_we_all_know_someone_affected2.pdf ) written by Rory was included as a central feature of the CTV Bell Let’s Talk website during the campaign in 2013. Rory was at the CTV studio in Toronto on the Bell Let’s Talk Day helping to facilitate online communication with people in crisis. Over $5.5million was raised.
YLC由CTV关于贝尔大家谈在线方式咨询的人在危机. YLC的建议是，IM (即时通讯) 这种方法是有问题的，应该搁置起来，以便转介给现有机构和资源.
People have asked if YLC have had any funding assistance at all from Bell Let’s Talk and the answer, as at September, 2017, is zero.
Suicide Safer Communities
A Suicide-Safer community is one that has demonstrated:
- a commitment to suicide prevention,
- providing compassionate care,
- support to those bereaved by suicide, 和
- promoting the mental health and wellness of its citizens.
Suicide-Safer communities are passionate in their belief that suicides are preventable and that prevention is a shared responsibility where every person has the potential to make a difference and save a life. It is a community that believes that everyone has a fundamental right to have a future filled with hope and possibility. These communities acknowledge their responsibility to ensure that in times of emotional distress its citizens have access to the necessary supports and resources.
Suicide-Safer communities have developed action plans for suicide prevention, intervention, support those bereaved by suicide and have built their capacity to address suicide prevention in a thoughtful and practical way.
A Suicide-Safer community recognizes that suicide prevention rests on the ability of its citizens to ask and talk about suicide. Conversations about suicide are encouraged and are met with compassionate, non-judging and informed responses.
A community designated as suicide-safer views this as a public affirmation and testament to create a safer, healthier and hope-filled life for its citizens.
A Suicide-Safer community is one in which people, organizations and stakeholders have come together to:
- Prevent suicides
- Promote public education and awareness
- Provide support to people bereaved by suicide and promote healing and recovery
- Promote the mental health and well being of all its citizens
