In Canada, men are reported to have the highest rates of death by suicide and despite this heightened risk, there is a clear lack of male-inclusive mental health response programs nationally. In partnership with the Canadian Centre for Men and Families Vancouver (CCMF-V), free male-inclusive suicide response training program workshops were facilitated across British Columbia to mental health professionals, volunteers and community members. As a result of these trainings, 54 participants enhanced their skills in suicide prevention response and gained further insight into increasing social support for men at risk in their local communities.
