Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our SPEAK Week events and joined us for our SPEAK Walk at Carmichael Park. As well as a special thanks to those who helped us in the planning and details of the week to make 2022 SPEAK Week a success.


The past two years have been hard on all of us in one way or another. As we carry on post global pandemic, our mental health and how we recover from the lasting impacts of COVID-19 are more important than ever. We are so grateful we were able to continue with our annual SPEAK Week and SPEAK Walk. Together we can increase awareness about suicide prevention, decrease its frequency, provide hope to survivors and build a caring and supportive community. We can't wait to see you again next year in our journey to save lives.
