"Since reporting in 2013, the number of (post-secondary) students who have seriously considered suicide rose from 9.5 to 13.1 per cent and attempts, which in 2013 were pegged at 1.3, have jumped to 2.1 per cent according to the National Collage Health Assessment for the Alberta region"

Have you noticed the 1-800 number on the back of chocolate bars and other candy? Did you know the Dinner Optimists have contributed funds toward this to combat youth and teen suicide? Join us for an update on the program. Children, teens and young adults are facing complex challenges today. Kids Help Phone is part of the solution.

This is a presentation to the Edmonton Dinner Optimist Club to share updates on where our support has been making an impact in Edmonton & Alberta.

Following the program we will have updates on past and upcoming projects Please bring a guest, especially a prospective new member for this important meeting.
