In 2014, the Niagara Suicide Prevention Coalition (NSPC) updated its 2008 strategic plan to highlight the prevalence of suicide in the Niagara Region of Ontario. This community review includes statistics gathered on suicide and self-harm in Niagara. Suicide and self-harm are slated to be addressed within the Implementation Phase of the Niagara Mental Health and Addictions Charter, beginning in the fall of 2014.
This community review includes suggested action steps to guide community leaders and policy makers in assigning resources to address suicide and self-harm in Niagara. These suggested action steps will help guide Niagara to become a more suicide-safe community. The summary outlines pertinent statistics as well as the suggested action steps, including the current status of community action already taken within each action step.
