RHA Marks Important Day

The Central RHA is joining organizations around the world, participating in World Suicide Prevention Day tomorrow.


Regional Director for Mental Health Ken Kroeker says people who contemplate suicide may be looking for a safe place to talk about what they're feeling.

Kroeker says the RHA is involved with several events marking World Suicide Prevention Day, including the Wall of Hope at the Portage and Winkler hospitals.


He stresses it's something spearheaded by the World Health Organization, through many groups, in an effort to raise awareness about the issue.
