Suicide and Self Harm
November 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
About this Event
On November 26th, 2020, we are going to bring together men to share their experiences and discuss their point of views on suicide and self harm.
The goal is to make a positive change, to have a healthy community conversation surrounding the growing rates of suicide and self harm amongst males. Our goal is to facilitate an open dialogue to pull back the curtain on the stigma surrounding mental health.
SOCH is a mental health promotion initiative started by two registered nurses from Brampton, tailored at providing the South Asian community with education, awareness, and resiliency for mental health. As a community initiative, SOCH’s aim is to first ‘start the mental health conversation’ to break the stigma in the South Asian community and second, to empower the community with the skills and knowledge to navigate the mental health system, support loved ones, and most importantly, take a preventative approach to caring for one’s overall well being.
We as a community should be encouraged to learn more about the symptoms and signs of mental health problems and for men to have the opportunity to share about their lives. Mental illness effects everyone and knows no boundaries, we should all be comfortable seeking help when needed.
