This September marks the 7th Annual Steven Robbins Memorial Walk for suicide awareness and mental health support. The walk was started six years ago by the family and friends of Steven Robbins, who sadly died by suicide in 2015. The Robbins family established this walk in memory of Steven in hopes of ending the stigma surrounding mental illness and to create a space where members of the community can share, heal, and support one another.

 

This year, Capital Region Mental Health & Addictions Association will be holding a two-week walkathon starting on September 10th; World Suicide Prevention day. We will be hosting a closing day event on Saturday, September 25th, at Odell Park Lodge with food and activities from 1 pm- 4 pm.

This walk is for every member of the community, whether you have been affected by suicide or mental health barriers, or simply wish to show support to those who have, all are encouraged to come and participate in the event by registering and raising money on behalf of Capital Region Mental Health & Addictions Association. All donations will help maintain the ongoing services of our programs and allow us to continue to grow and expand our reach in the Fredericton community in education, support, and advocacy.

Suicide Intervention Program

Free Online Program

This information is meant to provide basic knowledge to prevent someone from dying by suicide. We strongly encourage further training with courses such as ASIST and Mental Health First Aid. This in no way will replace professional mental health services. It is important to seek professional assistance. This project is to encourage conversations about suicide and mental health.

 

This program was made possible by the COVID -19 Emergency Community Support Fund provided by the Government of Canada and United Way of Central NB.
