Local residents are encouraged to join a free online event on Thursday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. to commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day and hear how community members are trying to end the stigma and prevent suicide.

The event is hosted by The Sarnia Lambton Suicide Prevention Committee and will feature representatives from TFT Talk for Tamara, A Voice for Steph, the Mike Harvey Foundation, and Spoken Hope. Visit for registration details.

World Suicide Prevention Day is on Friday, Sept. 10 and held to promote understanding about suicide and those impacted by a suicide attempt or loss.

“There is no reason that anyone has to die by suicide and if we all do our part, we can prevent those deaths that do happen and the devastating impact that they have,” the committee said in a release.

Anyone needing immediate assistance can call:

Distress Line – 519-336-3000
