Take a moment
Take a moment to check in on those you know with mental illness, from depression to anxiety to anything else.
Take a moment to talk with your kids about the importance of talking about their feelings, whenever they feel nervous, anxious, bullied, or sad.
Take a moment to create a safe space for those around you to express themselves and share what they are going through.
Take a moment to tell those important to you just how important they really are.
Find a local event
If you're in Ottawa, there are activities happening on Parliament Hill from 11:30-1 (bring an umbrella) and if you're anywhere else in the world, you can check out the International Association for Suicide Prevention website for events in your area.
