Suicide prevention in Saskatchewan requires all of our support. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Globally and here at home it is the leading cause of disability. Depression can put up barriers and prevent someone who suffers with it from seeking the help they need.
The good news is, with proper diagnosis and supports, depression is treatable. With your support, the Canadian Mental Health Association in Saskatchewan will continue to fight for the must needed mental health services and treatment options for depression in our province.
We know that with your help, we can do better.
At home, here in Saskatchewan at only 5%, we have the lowest percentage of our health budget dedicated to mental health out of all the Canadian provinces. 1 in 5 working Canadians report they struggle with depression. For every person who dies of suicide there are more than 20 others attempting suicide. Of those who die by suicide 90% have a diagnosable and treatable psychiatric disorder.
Investing in people and getting them the support and professional help they need will result in positive change for us all.
