Pauktuutit Observes World Suicide Prevention Day

September 10, 2013 (Ottawa, ON) Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada encourages everyone to observe World Suicide Prevention Day as an important day to remember those lost to suicide.

Pauktuutit joined Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, the National Inuit Youth Council, the Mental Health Commission of Canada, and the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention on Parliament Hill this afternoon to celebrate life.

All Canadians are encouraged to observe September 10th through this year’s theme of “Hope and Resiliency at Home and Work”.  This year’s speakers were inspiring the audience to take notice and be involved in your community.

Pauktuutit congratulates all the speakers and performers, organizers and attendees who were present and shared in today’s event.
