NEED2 works every day to actively prevent suicide through our anonymous chatting/texting service for youth in crisis (Youthspace.ca) and through suicide prevention presentations in schools (Suicide Awareness for Youth).
We are primarily a volunteer driven organization.
We provide community workshops and support groups.
We will design custom workshops for your organization in suicide prevention.
We promote the idea that we all can help with reducing suicide through being aware of each other and being willing to help.
Vision Statement: Caring communities without suicide
We work every day to prevent deaths by suicide through our community programs and our on-line presence. We provide accessible, emotional, and crisis support by engaging the community and advancing the dialogue.
