This week is the 12th annual Lift The Silence: Suicide Awareness Week, organised by Edmonton’s Crisis Support Centre and the Canadian Mental Health Association’s Edmonton Region.
As part of the week, on Tuesday 10 September (tomorrow) – World Suicide Prevention Day, Bill will be talking about the ride at the Crisis Support Centre’s annual fundraising breakfast. Tickets are still available, and will go to fund the great work the Crisis Support Centre does in our region.
The host of the event is Jennifer Martin, co-host of Alberta Primetime, seen on CTV Two. Ahead of the event, Bill was invited to talk about Hillary’s Ride, sucide prevention, and the need to reduce the stigma around mental health issues on last Friday’s Alberta Primetime (Sep 6).
This month (September) an article about the ride was also published in Avenue Magazine (Edmonton). If you’re not able to pick up a copy, you can read it online, or dive to page 74 on this online version.
Bill was also interviewed on World Suicide Prevention Day on Edmonton’s 630CHED Afternoon News radio show. You can listen back to that interview by:
